LAS VEGAS — The Sin City Gallery in Vegas announced plans to present "Incognito," a show featuring the innovative work of Cass Fuller.

The show will open April 2 and continue until the 26th of April.

Dr. Laura Henkel, sexologist and founder of the Sin City Gallery, told XBIZ Wednesday "Incognito" represents the fact that Fuller’s work is seen in some of the most popular venues in Las Vegas, "and yet no one knows who Cass Fuller is."

"Glamorously bright, arresting compositions link his work to the legacy of American pop art and Fuller has become very popular for a signature style that is truly of his time: ambitious, epic, engaged with contemporary culture and new techniques in the arts," Henkel said.

"Building on the culture-wide permeation of imagery from street art, as well as its way of inscribing large expanses of space, Fuller’s work takes pop to another level."

Fuller presents images from popular culture and advertising with "large, rhythmic swashes of color," often custom made for the space, Henkel noted.

"The artist re-imagines the paradigm of Andy Warhol’s silkscreen portraits of Hollywood stars to present a fashionable style — erotic, flashy and often developed in flat constellations of color that recall the majestic work of the iconic American pop artist James Rosenquist," Henkel continued.

"What ties Fuller to artists like Rosenquist is his command of formal elements, the adroit mastery of composition, color, the impactful use of text and collage, and areas of rich color offset by expanses of white space."

Fuller’s work translates well in large scale sites, according to Henkel, and he uses a series of remarkable devices to compose his work. Those include the recombination of images from print or advertising "interrupted by expanses of color, and inscribed with graffiti-like marks."

His ability to render an almost photographic image is well regarded and seen in murals such as Lavo and Whist Stove and Spirits, Henkel said.

"While the artist has earned a reputation for his grand murals, his rare small works are equally remarkable and much sought after," she added.

Fuller travels nationally for special commissions and his work includes installation art, large-scale murals in private homes and public spaces, as well as commissioned works. The artist’s projects may be seen at Commonwealth, Park on Fremont, Allure, Rumors and many high-end private residences in Las Vegas.

One of Fuller's pieces, "Yva," was inspired by Yva Richard, whom Henkel called "the mother of sex appeal."

"We owe much to her with regard to art, fashion and sex," Henkel said.
