AM was fortunate enough to be able to trek down recently to Washington D.C. and catch Tomokazu Matsuyama’s (interviewed) solo exhibition at the Katzen Arts Center at the American University Museum. Aptly titled Thousand Regards, Matsu presented a balanced mix of works that varied from sculptures, paintings to installations to greet the guests visiting the museum.
The well curated show displayed the many facets of the artist’s unique heritage and east meets west artistic approach. We caught his classic Kirin paintings and triptychs from his Running Deep series. Also present were his figures adorned in uniquely patterned & styled textiles to his breathtaking sculptures. The placement of the works fit in flawlessly with the unique architecture of the museum. Thousand Regards runs until May 20th, so if you’re near Washington D.C. make sure to stop by.
Check out all the goodness after the jump.
