Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 10 April 2015

AKIO TAKAMORI
April 10th through May 16th
Opening Reception Friday, April 10th from 5-8 p.m

Duane Reed Gallery is pleased to present new figurative sculptures by Akio Takamori. The exhibition opens Friday, April 10th with a reception that evening 5 – 8pm, and will be on view through May 16th. Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.

A seminal figure in the ceramic arts for more than thirty years, Takamori explores themes of cultural and corporeal duality by engaging the history of Eastern and Western aesthetics. Bold form and color defines his body of work, which is highly suggestive of arcane human emotions and sensuality. Takamori’s “stage-set approach” offers a platform for his ponderous characters, which carry more narrative weight as a group in a collective memory than as individual pieces.
