“Pretty on the Inside” at Paul Kasmin Gallery

The Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York is currently showing an exhibit called “Pretty on the Inside.”  The exhibit is organized by Erik Parker and KAWS.  Although I enjoyed all the art inside the exhibit, I struggled to find a thematic cohesion, so I’ll just snip what the press release tells you you are supposed to feel:  “At first glance, these artworks challenge the viewer through their visual intensity, but upon closer inspection, they reveal an inner beauty. Many of the artists included make ironic or subversive works, hijacking the language of cartoons and comics to both celebrate and criticize contemporary culture.”

The exhibit features works from 7 American artists: Todd James, KAWS, Tony Matelli, Erik Parker, Joyce Pensato, Peter Saul, and Karl Wirsum.  As I said before, I enjoyed all the art inside the exhibit even if I don’t agree with the literature that was handed to me.
