GHOST, IMAGES OF YOU I HAVE FOUND IN EVERYTHING EXHIBIT AT THE BOX GALLERY

GHOST, an exhibition exploring the idea that in every work of art there resides a “ghost.” Whether it occurs in the subject matter or just the lingering presence of the artist’s hand, art contains a life of its own within representations of the artist/creator. Bringing together six up and coming artists with international reputations spanning London to Los Angeles, GHOST features compelling work in diverse mediums and disciplines.

One such artist is Aya Kakeda, born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and currently living in Brooklyn, New York, brings a wealth of cultural influences to her watercolors. With a childlike sense of honesty and innocence the characters she creates interact with each other in a manner that hints at profound adult emotions. Aya’s work has been featured in Juxtapose Magazine, on the cover of the British pose Magazine, on the cover of the British arts magazine Rooms, and throughout exhibitions from New York to Los Angeles.

Here are sample of her work…

Other artists work that can been seen at the show are Ellen Rogers, Joy Shannon,Kathleen Masselink, Michelle Weiner, and Sarah Keliher Walsh. The GHOST group show is running through March 4, 2011 at The Box Gallery.
