Josh Sperling Shows Vintage-Inspired Artwork at Paris’s Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin

Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris, presents the mixed-media Chasing Rainbows. Photography by Claire Dorn/Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin.

Chronologically, is a millennial. But his artwork nods to the Googie signage of the 1950’s, Frank Stella’s shaped canvases of the ’60’s and ’70’s, and Memphis furniture of the ’80’s, the decade Sperling was born. He puts his own spin on things with his signature “squiggles,” forms made from plywood that he layers, covers in canvas, and paints in saturated, often clashing colors. Witness the results in at the Paris location of through February 24. The show’s namesake work is an installation that takes over an 11-by-22-foot wall.
