Historical Description

Kenny Scharf Flores Purple (Purple Flowers), 2022 brings the essence of spring in this whimsical sculpture of a still live vase. Protruding from the top is a bouquet of various funky flowers that resemble different shapes; some amorphous and ambiguous organic forms, some resembling the atom symbol, circles, clouds, some containing long, thin petals. Stems curl and zigzag, playful in their inception as they loop around the work, illustrating the artist’s ability to create nuanced details in an otherwise otherworldly still life. Flocked in a velvet-esque material, Flores Purple has a tactile texture that would be unassuming of aluminum. However, the mulberry flocking brings an air of brevity and whimsy to a medium that might be lacking in these qualities.
