Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery rings in the New Year with the premiere of new works from one of their most popular artists, Kazuki Takamatsu. The Japanese artist returns to the gallery for his fifth solo show, entitled Your Wings, being hosted in the Main Gallery through February 20.
Takamatsu’s haunting black and white imagery explores narratives of death and society, through a unique depth-mapping technique that he developed, in which classic mediums such as drawing, airbrush and gouache painting are combined with computer graphics. Within this new body of work, Takamatsu reflects on the conflict between personal freedom and the restraints of living within a larger societal group. Your Wings will be introducing fourteen of the artist’s signature mixed media pieces, plus feature two new rainbow-colored series (It is Time to Release (a Piece of the Rainbow) and Thoughts on Freedom).
