Marc Dennis: Guns, Koons, and Kitsch
This weekend Artspace went to the Marc Dennis exhibition Honey Bunny at Hasted Kraeutler, the Chelsea gallery that represents him. I had previously only seen the Artspace print Honey Bunny, which is awesome, and I was thrilled to see the whole series from which it comes. The paintings are so smooth and realistic that they look like photographs. There were a lot of paintings of hanging meat, but since I’m a vegetarian, I enjoyed the guns more (even though I’m a pacifist). I don’t know if it’s just the title, Honey Bunny, or the aesthetic of kitsch combined with violence, but for me, these works have a Pulp Fiction vibe. If you have the chance, I definitely recommend stopping by the show! –CAROLINE
I especially love the rabbit, a Jeff Koons allusion!

You can buy this print on Artspace! It looks so cool framed.
