2013 May 3 - Jun 2
Opening Reception: May 3, 6–9 PM
For this exhibition, Arima will present new paintings on canvas and works on paper. This body of painting represents, for Arima, a formal development from his continued series of drawings on whited-out newspapers. Depicting a fragmented everydayness, the paintings are informed by the artist's diaristic drawing practice, translating philosophical humor into the formal possibilities of the painting object.
But as much as there is play, his wild brushstrokes remember, with malaise, that it is real. Representation oscillates like an indefinite sense of time; tradition and new collapse onto themselves like anxious high-rise towers. Final fantasy of never ending, and then the commuter train, girl reads newspaper. It is a bridge not an end. (txt/QT)
