Over 150 local artists who have exhibited artworks with Axle Contemporary are having an exciting exhibition at Peters Projects (previously Gerald Peters Gallery). The opening is February 13 (Fri), 5 pm - 7 pm. This gallery has large and beautiful exhibition spaces. I showed glass marble piece and a piece from Cesium series.
Jon, Ricky Lee and I had a little fun at La Tienda, Eldorado, with the first annual Lamy Artist Invitational by the Lamy Association of Local Artists (LALA) December,6 2014. It is open from December 6 to January 6, 2015. Our collaboration "Plenum" was shown for the first time in US.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, Axle Contemporary invited 11 artists to create artworks at Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega. The Wetland is a part of Santa Fe Botanical Garden, located near I-25 La Cienega exit. I was pleased to find out how beautiful this 35 acre preserve is, and honored to be a part of this celebration. The Wilderness Acts exhibition opens from October 17th - November 9th. Also, related smaller artworks are shown in the Axle Contemporary Mobile Gallery from October 17th - November 6th.
Spectrum Gallery in Osaka, Japan is exhibiting my latest installation "Broken Chrysanthemum" in February, 2014. The installation is about Cesium 137, a part of radiation from Fukushima Nuclear Plant polluting our environment and health. The show's title "Seeds" presents three artsists' works related to social themes we face, and hope to plant cognitive seeds in viewers' mind.
Installation "Plenum" was exhibited at Gallery Zone, Osaka, Japan in October, 2013. This is my first collaboration with artist Jon Carver. It took 2 days and a half for installing the piece as we decided to put the rings together at the sight. That slight element of risk made it that much more exciting to see it all come together.
This March, one of my works will be shown in a group show at the contemporary art gallery Zone in Osaka, Japan. They are located in a marketplace in Minoh-city where people visit for daily shopping. Here is an excerpt from their mission statement. "Everyday life space becomes art space. Art space becomes everyday life space. There are no boundaries between life and art ... we want people in this community to be aware of how interesting and accessible contemporary art is... Our gallery's year-round programming features solo and group exhibitions by regional, national and international visual artists." I am very excited my work will be included in their space!
