KAWS: COMPANIONSHIP IN THE AGE OF LONELINESS. Original screenprint, GONE, 2019, and limited-edition copy exhibition catalogue. Printed in New York under the supervision of the artist, this screenprint on Arches Aquarelle 300gsm is based on GONE. An emotional depiction of loss, GONE , 2019, shows KAWSs well-known characters COMPANION and BFF in a pose reminiscent of a classic pietà.
It is among the most powerful of KAWSs sculptural works, which often embody humility, pathos and vulnerability. Whether as a monumental sculpture, vinyl edition, or screenprint, the exquisitely rendered and immaculately finished work engages with contemporary issues such as loneliness and celebrates supportiveness in todays increasingly fractured world.
KAWS is one of the most prominent and prolific artists of his generation. Working across art, fashion and design, he creates colour-filled paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street and public art, products, and streetwear. His work is infused with humour and humanity and is deeply tied to our times. KAWS draws his cast of characters from pop-culture animations to form a distinctive artistic vocabulary. Featuring a new text by Margaret Atwood (The Handmaids Tale), a biographical essay by NGV Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Dr Simon Maidment, and more than 200 images, including documentation of the career-survey exhibition KAWS: Companionship in the Age of Loneliness at the National Gallery of Victoria, this publication is a comprehensive overview of the artist's work to date.
