Curated by New York art collective, League of Their Own, “Mine” is Hoeffnagel’s first show with the gallery and presents a series of eccentric characters that the artist has developed over the past decade. Although figurative, Hoeffnagel conceals the true identity of each character, allowing the focus to turn to the story that is unfolding around. Each painting in that case can be seen as a mystery novel, where the artist places the symbols and the viewer connects the dots.
Founded in 2016, League OTO aims to make art collecting accessible to the masses — as opposed to a select few. In the past, they’ve curated collections with rising and established figures, which include Takashi Murakami, KAWS, Yayoi Kusama, George Condo and most recently, Evgen Čopi Gorišek. “Mine” will be on view at Padre Gallery until December 11.
Also on view in New York, “KAWS: SPOKE TOO SOON” is now open at Skarstedt Gallery.
