Thrush Holmes: This is Some Louvre Shit

January 17 – 25, 2020

This exhibition marks one of Holmes’ first explorations into sculpture. Retaining his energetic use of colour, Holmes sprayed 200 15.5” cubes with recharged fire extinguishers full of paint. The resulting works are meticulously assembled and topped with neon to create a monumental pyramid that marries function and aesthetics.

The individual works that comprise the central installation in This is Some Louvre Shit are part of a series of unique editions by Thrush Holmes titled Cube. Created exclusively for New Auction, Cube is a functional sculpture: part art, part furniture.

Cube is available for purchase online through New Auction.
