Opening Reception: Thursday, January 12 from 6:30pm to 8pm
Takefumi Hori is inspired by the energy of New York City as well as decorative art from the 18th and 19th centuries. Hori’s techniques of layering gold and paint, scratching and scraping the surface, and mixing various kinds of metallic gold creates visual depth, reflecting light in different ways depending on the angle of view. Compositional elements such as circles, squares and rectangles abound, inspired by his studies in Japanese calligraphy. Takefumi Hori was born in 1978 in Tokyo and moved to New York in 2004.
