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.
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.
