About this Art
This piece of original artwork comes mounted on a steel rod and reclaimed concrete.
Opening to the public Friday, September 19th from 6-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to welcome Australian artist David “Meggs” Hooke for his solo exhibition Spoiled Rotten. The exhibition of over 40 new paintings and multiples explores the wondrous decay of social morality stemming from modern society’s obsession with pop culture and overindulgent materialism, and continues Meggs’ perpetual fascination with dualism and finding beauty in tragedy.
“Detroit is a city of duality more so than many other cities I have been to. I sought to incorporate this by using objects and surfaces that imply decay, in what I consider to be a beautiful way. Old wooden materials and signs with layers of paint tell a story of their own. Although the colors and textures are aesthetically beautiful, I think it’s about giving these materials a new life, a second purpose.” - Meggs
This RUN comes signed by Meggs with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from Inner State Gallery.
