Painter Motohide Takami will join the Artist Talk for the upcoming exhibition Catenations hosted by Tiger Strikes Asteroid. Cantenations, is a group exhibition curated by Rachael Gorchov and Jo Yarrington. Works in various mediums explore the roles water plays in health, happiness, as well as the politics of water. Motohide Takami will be showing FIRE.P, 2013 along with works by Atul Bhalla, Gail Biederman, Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, Mary Dwyer, Timothy Fadek, Julia Krolik and Owen Fernley, Phoebe Murer, Bridget Frances Quinn, Karolin Schwab, and Cheryl Yun. FIRE.P is from the artist's iconic series of “burning house” paintings. They reference the Japanese expression, “fire on another shore,” meaning unfortunate events that are not related to you. This painting addresses the limitations of human empathy and is especially resonant now in 2020. In anticipation of the opening of “Cattentions” now rescheduled for fall, Gorchov and Yarrington are hosting Zoom discussions to introduce the works. Takami will join five of the participating artists from his studio in Tokyo.
