Naomi Okubo, Kuniyasu Sakaizawa: On Illusions
Aug 04-Sep 03
Naomi Okubo's tender images of lush landscapes animated by cartoonish details often conceal the fragile state of the female characters at the center of her work. Kuniyasu Sakaizawa's iterative process makes similar use of the canvas, as layers of paint, applied in dozens of identical gestures, build out beyond a two-dimensional surface. Each element of the work--title, color composition, shifts in tone and texture--reveal a body of thought much larger than any single painting.
