@ericnomiddlenametai “Static Series” is the result of a meditative practice during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Made from pure silver powder and sumi Ink. Over time, these elements will naturally shift in color to reflect their chemical change.

“Eric Tai’s art examines this period of time as an in-between space where imagination leads to reality, memories take shape to retell stories of the past, and life is the beauty between birth and death. Here, art is not merely material or content. It is the experience of beauty found in the mundane. His contemplative paintings invite viewers to continue the meditative, worshipful postures he’s begun through the moving of material on surface.”

The idea of being a “little surprised and excited to dig deeper” is @herrspencer’s hope for when people experience his work. He wants us to look at his paintings and “wonder: why? how? what are the possibilities? what does it mean I can do? what does it mean I shouldn’t do?”

His body of work featured in “Identity” earlier this summer focused on challenging viewers to wrestle with and dig deeper into the concept of the male gaze.

The narrative behind this piece in particular, “By the River,” is “she’s changing, she was swimming, she was doing something, and these ‘heroes’ showed up and surrounded her. They encircled her to protect her, but in doing so they gave themselves a prime vantage point to have that male gaze as they walk around her, inspecting, under the guise of protection.”

REMINDER | Join us for the opening reception of Identity on Wednesday, September 1 from 6 - 8 PM.

Identity, the inaugural exhibition in what will be our newly renovated gallery space, will feature new works by Dimeji Onafuwa and Kenny Nguyen. Dimeji Onafuwa’s poignant figurative paintings channel the nuances of bold, simplistic color and Yoruba linguistic philosophies, while Kenny Nguyen’s sculpturesque works in paint and silk chronicle the deconstruction and reconstruction of both identity and materials. Derivative of each artist’s relationship with their respective heritage, these works convey themes of personal and collective identity, and activate a multicultural visual dialogue."

Stunning installation of @kennynguyenclt in El Salvador. We’ve been holding out on you of these incredible images of this sculpture sold COVID summer of 2020. Happy that it made it to this new sleek contemporary home in the jungle and lakeside.

The only disappointment was that we didn’t get to travel and assist with the installation.

Bravo @kennynguyenclt

Stay tuned and follow along on his @theotherartfair involvement starting tomorrow. Did we tell you that Kenny got the directors pick - and the curator pick as well.

Kenny was also selected as one of the top 20 emerging artist to ‘watch’ in 2020.

“Danish Party Hugge” 40x80, Mixed Media on Canvas

We could not think of a more perfect home for this @hanspetersenart_ piece. There was an instant connection between our client and this piece. We love when young collectors know exactly what they want 😉 (peep @nico_malo1 St. Francis of Assisi in the background)

“This painting has all the delicious ingredients of a Danish Party: An angry old drunk guy, a topless woman, a smiling fat man, and a strange animal. This is what the happiest people in the world call Hugge.” - Hans Petersen

Stop by SOZO today or tomorrow to see more of Hans and Nico’s work!
