RAID Projects is proud to present a solo exhibition of work by Hiromi Takizawa – Birds i view: traveling LIGHTly, including the work Sundown Spectacles and more.
Saturday, October 13th, 7-10 pm
Sundown Spectacles reflects on the seascape and harbors of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California. I work to capture and transform this everyday scenery into an imaginary landscape experimenting with optical illusion.
I have always been fascinated by the visual phenomenon that occurs when light is transmitted, reflected and refracted on, in and through glass materials. Integrating these optical phenomena into personal narratives shift perception that only the quality of glass itself can generate, transforming emotions into concrete material.
With my personal narrative I attempt to reflect on our contemporary society and a culture where we manage complex feelings and the conflicting emotions of our everyday lives.
