Cosmic Leaves II


April 5 - 30

#11.jpg

For over thirty years, Kanetaka Ikeda has created works inspired by a vivid dream where he was in the center of the universe. In this dream, the cosmos appeared as a vast, nebulous tree extending endlessly outward from the center and surrounded by countless whirling suns and stars: the flowers and fruit of the cosmic tree. This exhibition continues to explore an aspect of this theme, titled Cosmic Leaves. In this series, Ikeda creates mixed media assemblages with leaf-like frames of fiber and cherry wood branches, decorated and personalized with a mosaic of pieces of painted canvas. These sculptural works feel at once organic and otherworldly, and offer the viewer a tangible portal through which to enter Ikeda’s vision.

Artists carry a central role so deeply rooted that it is shocking to sift back through the mists and sands of time to the prehistoric caves and uncover the artist-as-shaman residing there even then, calling the hunted to the hunters through stunning paintings of animals and humans. There is an indescribable moment when one realizes that artists stem from a profound lineage – that they continue to be the ones who draw and paint and sculpt and act and dance and more to manifest literally, energetically, and spiritually what the community needs in order to be fed, in all ways, and to thrive. It is a magical, miraculous, essential thing to be an artist.

 

My pursuit in this body of work, which does not attempt or pretend to reproduce the art of the Lascaux and Chauvet caves even while influenced deeply by those images, is to find, recognize, and draw on the shaman as much as possible and to bring her/me from these deep beginning places into my own images as best and as fully as I can.
