Scott Kirschner // INNER WASTELAND

solo • October 7th through October 29th, 2016

 

 
Arch Enemy Arts is proud to announce the opening of Inner Wasteland, the long-anticipated followup to Philadelphia artist Scott Kirschner’s 2013 AEA solo show, My Famine. Scott’s work is somber, haunting, and beautiful, expertly using surreal imagery and extraordinary characters to calm and to center stories that explore many of the more difficult parts of life, weaving curiosity, whimsy, and magic into journeys through dark places, like the original versions of our favorite fairy tales.

Through new works in oils and graphite, Inner Wasteland tells the story of an enchanted forest as a metaphor for the subconscious, and each scene is a memory that’s become a part of our internal landscape. These moments don’t simply disappear, they become entangled in the underbrush and in limbs of trees and bushes, and enter a process in which the forest works slowly and steadily to reclaim them. To surround them with life and beauty and each vine, flower, or layer of dirt works to suppress and take back those places over time. .
