Preparation K by Keegan McHargue
A collection of recent colored pencil drawings by artist Keegan McHargue. Preparation K is a fresh peek into the artist milieu. The drawings takes us on a provocative behind-the-scene journey examining the many layers of the self and society. Classic themes of night/day, work/play, inside/outside intertwine with current news headlines and history to create an openended narrative. From cover to cover, Keegan’s kaleidoscopic vision keeps you itching for more.
As a painter, sculptor, choreographer, and musician, Keegan McHargue is concerned with the tension between tragedy and comedy that lies behind the banality of everyday life. McHargue’s semi-abstract mixed-media paintings and colorful assemblages blend identifiable figures with objects of the artist’s imagination; he is particularly inspired by music for his use of color and abstraction.
Keegan McHargue has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, such as Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco; Deitch Projects, New York; Hiromi Yoshii Gallery, Tokyo; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris; MACRO Museum, Rome; DESTE Foundation, Athens. He is part of permanent collections including Deste Foundation of the Contemporary Arts, Athens; Judith Rothschild Foundation | Drawing Collection, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA.
