New Day Rising :: Sashie Masakatsu at Mizuma, Tokyo

Moon, 102 x 76 inches, 2009.

Sashie Masakatsu creates visions of a post apocalyptic future, where fallen Japanese civilization reemerges in imposing orbs of cultural detritus, hovering above decayed and desolate urban landscapes. We were first clued in to his paintings when some small works were displayed at Giant Robot 2, Los Angeles as part of their 2007 Gesai exhibit. At last year’s PULSE Fair Miami, we watched as several of our TAC members frantically snatched up all available pieces on view with Mizuma Gallery.  On Nov. 28 the Tokyo based gallery launches “De Facto Standard,” a solo exhibit of new paintings, including those previewed here.  - Click images for detailed views.
