Hiro Yamagata : ‘Transient’ Series (Mixed Media)

::

This new series, Transient, is a tour de force that celebrates the cosmic dance between tectonic forces and frail temporal overlays in a dizzying and cinematic symphony of monotones. This series ensures this kaleidoscopic artist will maintain his place at the forefront of the visual avant garde. [Ex - Bill Lowe]

Japanese-American artist Hiro Yamagata marks a dramatic shift in aesthetic in his new series titled Transient. Known through the eighties and nineties as a master of Pop spectacle, Yamagata transforms his passion for dialogue between macrocosmic and microcosmic considerations into a distinctly new pictorial domain. The result is a profoundly introspective examination of the collective and individual psychic template. This interface is depicted in hauntingly beautiful works done in black and white on hand-made rice paper attached to canvas. Often monumental in scale, these works convey a sense of timelessness and impart an isolation that is both compelling and forbidding. This series speaks to the issue of time, place and perspective while its elements insinuate an unfolding apocalyptic splendor which lies just beneath or above our dimension. A global force in contemporary art for over thirty years, Yamagata stakes a claim in new philosophical terrain with this historic series of somber abstractions. The work calls upon his rich heritage and imbues it with his visionary grasp of the metaphysical and the spiritual. He couples this with an exacting mastery of technique and media to great theatrical effect. BL
