AM had the honor of visiting Todd Schorr in his studio recently to take a first look at his latest body of work for his upcoming show at Merry Karnowsky (teased). The rendered details, composition, and concepts behind each of paintings in this exhibition were perfectly planned and executed. Besides four stunningly beautiful large paintings, there will also be other smaller works, color studies, and drawings in the exhibition as well as a print release.
Since his last show in Los Angeles was over five years ago, it would not be surprising that there are some readers out there who have not seen his work in person. Because Schorr is one of the most prominent and influential members of the Low Brow/Pop Surrealism movement, this is definitely one of the “must see” shows of the year. Make sure to set March 28th aside for this epic show, and also get your summer plans in gear as Schorr will be opening a 25-year retrospective exhibition including over 50 paintings at the San Jose Museum of Art on June 27th.
Expect more upcoming coverage, but in the meantime, take a look at the photos from our studio visit after the jump.
