Known for his appetizing yet dangerous-looking sculptures, mixed-media artist Scott Hove will debut a new body of work at San Francisco’s Spoke Art this Thursday, May 2. Titled “Guns & Ecstasy,” Hove’s latest body of work was created with heavy topics borne in mind. Presenting candy-colored assault weapons decorated like extravagant birthday cakes, Hove uses the tension between the violent and tantalizing aspects of his work to probe issues surrounding America’s gun policies in light of the recent tragedies that have occurred around the country. In addition to the gun sculptures, Hove will debut an elaborate, labyrinthine installation. Take a look at a sneak peek at the installation and some shots from Hove’s studio courtesy of Francis Zera and check out the show at Spoke Art May 2- May 25.
