Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Lately - a group exhibition exploring contemporary representational painting. Fluctuating from fluid, abstract mark making to tightly rendered details, each artist brings a fresh point of view and definition to realism in the depiction of their subjects.
Featuring 13 artists from around the world, the exhibition offers a cross-section of artists whose work we have been watching recently. From long-time gallery artists developing new bodies of work to fresh faces making their Hashimoto Contemporary debut, each artists contribures their unique approach to illustrating their version of reality.
Each simulacra imparts the artists' perspective and practice upon the imagery, from Joel Daniel Phillips' retelling of nuclear testing during WWII via historical photographs to Martine Johanna's tenuous and surreal figure to the censorial pixilation of Jessica Hess' architectural landscape. Offering a variety of media and style, from relaxed and care-free figures in Jeffrey Cheung's oil pastel canvas, to the flattened and stylized party scenes in Chelsea Wong's watercolors, to the sensitive and allegorical paintings of Nadia Waheed - as the title suggests, the exhibition is as collection of artists whose work we have been contemplating lately.
The show features new works by Brett Amory, Jeffrey Cheung, Rune Christensen, David Heo, Jessica Hess, Celia Jacobs, Martine Johanna, Jeremie Marie, Joel Daniel Phillips, Nadia Waheed, John Wentz, Woodrow White and Chelsea Wong.
