Galerie Guido W. Baudach presents Boys, the third exhibition of Swiss artist Yves Scherer with the gallery.
Centered around a series of new paintings and a sculpture inspired by footage from a childhood video the show deepens the artist’s ongoing interest in the male figure, its representation and related ideas of masculinity. Subsequent to Vincent, 2018, a rose colored life-size 3D portrait of the actor Vincent Cassel in beach-wear, on view in our previous group show Manifestations, Scherer in Boys takes a very personal approach to a subject that for him is all the more relevant in times when gender concepts are being re-framed.
The exhibition is accompanied by an essay by Daniel Lalor titled Boys & The Semblance of Boyhood.
Yves Scherer, born 1987 in Solothurn, Switzerland, lives and works in New York.all images © the gallery and the artist(s)
