DESCRIPTION
Gallery SATORI is pleased to present Fresh Asphalt, a group show featuring works by Sandra Bermudez, CJ Collins, Amy Finkbeiner, Ethan Greenbaum, Joyce Kim, Pei-yu Lai, Sky Kim, Margaret Lanzetta, Jisoo Lee, Sarah Olson, Sandra Eula Lee, David Packer, and Nathlie Provosty. Like the freshly poured steaming asphalt in the middle of a hot and sticky summer the artwork in the show all share a rich dark black element. However in contrast to this dark fa├žade they put forth a cool crisp presence that breaths slowly and meditatively.

Beginning with material realism, the works in this exhibition deal with the transformation of our notions of the familiar. Some portray organic forms that mysteriously emerge out of darkness while others introduce minimalist shapes that are stripped of all evocative elements except their own luminous presence. From an organic gestural large-scale charcoal drawing to shinny computer manipulated nightscapes of Shanghai and Tokyo, the show presents a wide array of media including Sintra and melamine paintings, ceramic automobiles, and mixed media leather sculptures.
