Preview: Scott Scheidly’s “The Pinks” at Spoke Art Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

This Thursday, August 1, San Francisco’s Spoke Art will debut painter Scott Scheidly’s “The Pinks.” While humorous at a first glance, Scheidly’s work unearths interesting social dynamics through its exploration of the cultural implications of colors. The artist paints realistic portraits of male world leaders and public figures, softening their hyper-masculine auras with a color palette of lilacs, pinks and magentas. Scheidly’s work draws attention to the biases coded in the imagery that surrounds us and the gendered implications of the visual signifiers of power. Take a look at our sneak peek of the works in “The Pinks” below and see the exhibition August 1 through 24.
