Haiku with Abandoned Ghosts: New Work by Demond Matsuo at The Foundation Gallery

DATE
Sat, Mar 7, 2015

Haiku with Abandoned Ghosts: New Work by Demond Matsuo

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, 2015 6 – 10 pm
Exhibition Dates: March 7 – April 4, 2015

25% of proceeds to benefit: S.T.V Movement

Demond Matsuo is a traveler, a collector of images, an artist whose practice appears as vital as any other function of his being. In his own words “I search the world through seas of papers and inspirations, trying to arrive at a conclusion, a synthesis. The collage serves as a treasure map of sorts, an alchemical illustration pulling you through to understanding my overall meaning.” What you are pulled up through is multilayered Japanese-inspired figures, thick with saturated color and detail. The images echo centuries of ancient history and still vibrate with the ever-present sense that power is a volatile, complex force that can wrap us up in violence, as easily as it can inspire.
