Exhibition: Takashi Homma, New Waves 2000-2013

Event Date/Time

Sep 12, 2013 to Oct 26, 2013

Description

In NEW WAVES, Takashi Homma presents a series of photographs of the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii spanning thirteen years. The photographs of waves depict the coastline continuously un-changed by climate or seasonal time. By reproducing and revisiting the same landscape repeatedly, Homma captures focused reflections of the interaction between pictorial and mental space, the waves and our selves.

NEW WAVES presents a series of work rooted in psychological phenomena, pictorial meditation, and temporal space. Homma's NEW WAVES, are presented as a trichotomy: land/sea/sky. This triad is the paramount relationship in the seascapes, which confront the viewer by embodying variant portraits of the self. 

Accompanying the exhibition, Takashi Homma presents a catalogue entitled "NEW WAVES 2000-2013." In the essay "Cresting," which is included in the catalogue, philosopher and art critic David LaRocca writes that, Homma's photographs "do not evoke the same response in us every time; they are, we are tempted to say, individual (or at least individuated) to such an extent that like each frame from Homma's camera, each instant in the life of this water-as-wave exists as an enigmatic particularity." Each photograph therefore, provides a unique lens in which to contemplate the complex relationships that arise in viewing each seascape.

NEW WAVES, presented as a retrospective, embodies moments of calamity and power that intrinsically questions the perception of homogeneity through honest interpretation.
