I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
Gauntlet Gallery is pleased to present Contemporary Contemporary,
a group show featuring up and coming artists who have created new works
referencing and paying homage to the most influential artists of the
past 50 years. From the beginning
of the Pop-Art movement of Warhol and Lichtenstein in the 1960's to the
art market's acceptance of street art by Fairey and Bansky, the art
world has changed rapidly over the past half century. Technology and
social media have allowed artists to reach a level
of popularity and iconicism like never before making it easier for the
most popular artists of our time to influence one another.
Contemporary Contemporary celebrates that present day
artists can now, more then ever, be inspired by works of their time and
pay homage to these larger than life contemporary artists.
