Four artists exploring unfamiliar territories

July 26 - September 11, 2011

Keisuke Mizuno - "Squirrel Skull with Orchids" - porcelain - 5000. - "My approach to making art is to start from familiar things, then give a new life to them by injecting a personal twist into them. For the previous series of work I focused on flowers, fruits, and insects that I have enjoyed all my life. Then I combined my personal belief and understanding of the cycle of human life and death with the cycle of plant life and decay. The resulting work was pleasingly colorful and meticulously detailed with the underlying theme of inevitable death in all living things. Because of those appealing visual qualities the work was very photogenic and very appealing to the viewers."
