On Friday, October 7, 2016, Arch Enemy Arts presents ‘Inner Wasteland’, the solo exhibition of Scott Kirschner. Featuring an eerily surreal new collection of work, his ominous tones, poignant imagery, and mysterious figures haunt with gentle ease into the ambit of emotion and melancholy.
With a nearly tangible intimacy that allows viewers to wander freely with interpretative curiosity, this highly anticipated solo exhibition is the follow-up to his 2013 AEA show, ‘My Famine’.
“Through 11 new works in oils and graphite, Inner Wasteland tells the story of an enchanted forest as a metaphor for the subconscious, and each scene is a memory that’s become a part of our internal landscape.” ~ Arch Enemy Arts
Opening Reception (both shows):
October 7, 2016| 6– 10PM
October 1-29, 2016
109 + 111 Arch Street | Philadelphia, PA 19106

This same night, Arch Enemy Arts celebrates the opening of ‘The Comfort of Stars’, a new group exhibition weaving a range of celestial and science fiction interpretations. Don’t miss it!
The Comfort of Stars features new work by Chris Mars, Naoto Hattori, Julie Filipekno, RELM, Scott Listfield, Happy D, Richard J Oliver, Dave Correia, Ania Tomicka, Erich J. Moffitt, Veks Van Hillik, 100Taur, Chris Leib, Nick Sheehy, Jason Blake, and JoKa with each of the 16 artists taking a science-fiction approach to explore our place in the universe, “our place” being either the self or humankind.
As a collection, the works use space and time to tell a wide array of stories of the vastness of the universe and the smallness of ourselves, as a background for loneliness, isolation, as the last frontier for exploration and adventure, and to portray connected-ness or common origin or the ‘theory of everything’.
