Pumped, 2007

Nice to see Deborah Colton Gallery dropping a dime on a full-page Artforum ad for the new Jerry Kearns show Between Heaven and Earth. While the pastiche of pieces like Pumped may be eye-rollingly gratuitous, at least there is a hamburger, big-headed babies or something silly flying through the sky. Kinda reminds me of reading Tom Robbins- silly pop trash. Kearns older work splits the bill between Hockney and Salle blowjobs, so his synthesis of the two is at least "original". Opens November 10th, stop by Summer Street before Addicks moves out and the whole landscape changes!
