Kenichi Hoshine: The Night Before, January 10 - February 7, 2009 at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York, NY. "...In The Night Before, Hoshine's pluralistic sensibility combines disparate influences. Elements of heightened realism appear sparsely, in sections, obscured through cloudy forms that echo the organic shapes and spontaneity of abstract expressionism. Working in layers of graphite, charcoal, paint, wax, and tea, Hoshine creates glimpses of fragmented figures in varying levels of focus. The resulting effect appears as partially concealed faces, hands, and other fractioned sections of the body, seemingly emerge from beyond - or withdraw into—a fog-like atmosphere." More...
