“One of the reasons the Italians pulled me in [to the Memphis Group], and one of the reasons why I’m in California, is that fun is okay,” Peter Shire once told Surface. Playtime is certainly on the menu at the design icon’s latest outing, which fills Jeffrey Deitch’s gallery with works that explode modernist form into bursts of color and kinetic energy. Shire, who handcrafts most of his pieces in his Echo Park emporium, infuses subversive humor and playfulness into everything he touches, making his studio a living masterpiece that will come alive in the gallery.
