This event has ended.

Pluto is my Master marks Alessandro Pessoli’s eighth solo exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery. It consists of new paintings, drawings, and ceramic sculptures, and takes place on the first and third floors of the gallery. Populating the first floor is a series of large-scale paintings created over the last two years. The most recent, Family and Monsters, 2023, is a portrait of the artist, his wife, children, and dog, surrounded by floating bright skulls and demonic figures.

On the third floor are a series of paintings called Reborn Skulls, wherein a skull is the source from which various colorful plants, birds, and worms, among other natural imagery, spring out. Pessoli’s rigorous and varied painting techniques are on full display, demonstrating the depth of his art historical (and material) knowledge and understanding. Three colorful ceramics done in the Maiolica tradition, and a series of new drawings, Reborn Figures, round out the presentation. In all, the exhibition embodies a celebration of life and the nuances of its cycle, for man and nature alike.
