On Saturday, January 16, 2021, downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery celebrated three new exhibitions. Kazuki Takamatsu’s “Your Wings“ opens in the main gallery, alongside a solo show Chishi Morimura, entitled Aimai, in Gallery 3. Contact the gallery to view these exhibitions.
“Your Wings,” premieres new works from one of the gallery’s most popular artists, Kazuki Takamatsu. This is his fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. Takamatsu was born in Sendai, Japan in 1978. From a country known both for its picturesque landscapes and for its extremely high suicide rate, his work aims to highlight this duality of enchanting beauty and dreadful sadness.
Takamatsu attended the “Oil Painting” faculty at the renowned Tohoku University of Art and Design, where he graduated in 2001. He currently lives and works in his hometown, Sendai, known for having been nearly completely destroyed by the earthquake and tsunami Tohoku in 2011. Takamatsu’s work still presents a clear connection to those catastrophic events, and his work creates beautiful hybrids of pain and hope, luring the viewer into a never-ending spiral of emotions.
Note from the gallery: In order to keep our family of artists, collectors and staff safe, and in compliance with the COVID-19 state-wide mandate, the physical gallery will remain closed until further notice but can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
