Henry Taylor at Blum & Poe by Shasin-Bu

Taylor’s work continues to delve and expand upon the language of portraiture and painting, while also pointing to the social and political issues affecting African Americans today. From racial inequality, homelessness, and poverty, to the importance of family and community, Taylor says, “My paintings are what I see around me…they are my landscape paintings.” His portraits reveal a fascination with the sitters, who are oftentimes portrayed against solid-colored backgrounds, as well as domestic and outdoor spaces. The psychological and physical implications of “space” – public vs. private, interior vs. exterior – is a theme that Taylor explores throughout this presentation. 

The exhibition begins inside of an abandoned dirt lot, similar to those from Taylor’s own adolescence, which became playgrounds and gathering spaces for the community. These lots also provided temporary housing, becoming tent cities for the disenfranchised. As a result, they did not go unnoticed and were always policed. Such memories continue to influence Taylor, who turns to both his personal archives as well as found imagery and objects for source material. 

Exhibition opens till November 5, 2016 Tuesday Saturday 10am-6pm 2727 S. LA CIENEGA BOULEVARD

A Knit artist Chihiro Hasunuma showed her latest collaboration with Kazuma Shimazu (Hair Designer CODE+LIM), Maiko Sato (Hair Stylist at Kilico.). When I stepped into the gallery, I felt like I was in somebody's brain. There are three, pretty big colorfully knitted objets in the small room which she got inspired by brain cells and the Japanese girl in a bright red dress was sitting still in the biggest objet. Suddenly, an ear piercing woman's voice (it was some kind of interview but it sounded a little scary and did a fantastic work as uncomfortable BGM which was perfect for the mood tho) echoed through the room and two hair stylists and Chihiro started to knit those paper look-like threads into the model's hair and style the model's hair. The avant-garde art work immediately grabbed the audiences' hearts and they were totally holding their breathe.  It's been a while to see something so high-quality. BGM, Art direction of the room, the model, the dress... everything was ideally coordinated. The exhibition is open till August 3rd, 2016 at Omotesando rocket and I highly recommend to see this performance and exhibition.
