Published on the occasion of the exhibition KAWS: GONE at Skarstedt, New York, this catalogue features full plate images, details, and installation photographs, with custom fluorescent printing throughout.
GONE is the artist’s inaugural show upon joining Skarstedt Gallery, debuting four large-scale bronze sculptures, and a series of new paintings. Ranging from 6ft. to 8ft. tall, KAWS’s bronze figures command moments of careful contemplation, yet comfort viewers with their visual familiarity. New insights to KAWS’s ideology also reveal themselves in the curation of paintings, which, unique to this body of work, feature a slightly different color palette – viewers are brought to exalt in rich earthy tones: deep green, burgundy, moss, teal, and pops of neon yellow. Experiencing GONE offers endless parallels that one can draw between the paintings and bronzes; moments of witnessing and hiding, moments of bravery and resignation, and the subsequent paradox of emotions.
