Having been featured on these viral pages numerous times in the past, iconic artist Kenny Scharf gives word he will open his latest exhibit later this month at Honor Fraser in Los Angeles. Aptly titled “Hodgepodge,” the show will certainly feature Scharf’s unique sensibilities honing in on the notions of creation and destruction, acting out an eternal struggle between the natural and the man-made. Featuring paintings, sculptures, and a Cosmic Cavern installation, Scharf created a customized Cadillac painted in a hybrid of sea and powder blue, with a band of space creatures having taken hold, including some oft-appropriated characters from The Jetsons cartoon series. This historic symbol of luxury and progress has been turned into a vehicle in which to ride out the apocalypse in style as it crashes into another sculpture, Picnicaboom – a “picnic table” of sorts with an atomic mushroom cloud exploding from it. To help christen Scharf’s newly customized Cadillac sculpture, Ann Magnuson will interact with the piece in a manner reminiscent of the free-associating beat poets like Kerouac and Ginsberg. “Hodgepodge” will be open for a short period of time starting April 14, so be sure to check back for images from the show.
