"Mrs. A" by Homare Ikeda, oil & acrylic on canvas, 50"h x 42"w. At Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona.Homare Ikeda: New Works

Opening Reception Friday Evening,
September 4, 2015, 5 to 8 p.m.

This month Lanning Gallery showcases new work by Neo-Expressionist Homare Ikeda. Both large paintings and smaller mixed media monotypes will be showcased, pieces that are at once playful and sophisticated.

The artist, whose international reputation continues to grow, is currently not only a successful fine artist but also a long-time professor of art in Colorado, a location he came to love after earning his BFA and MFA from the University of Colorado. But it is the influence of his unique homeland that makes the artwork of Homare Ikeda stand out. From the small island of Yoron, off the coast of Japan, Ikeda expresses in his paintings an intimate knowledge of the sea, its intricacies as the source of all life, the shapes of its coastlines and coral reefs, and the nuance of its waters.

It is water’s often microscopic detail that emerges as frequent form on canvas in Ikeda’s paintings. His are joyful images, shapes and lines that capture both detail and broad stroke, images that celebrate the creation of life itself as they ask viewers to also look deeper at all that creation implies.

The exhibition includes many of the mixed media monotypes that offer collectors the opportunity to acquire smaller works by Homare Ikeda. These are increasingly hard to come by now that Ikeda is concentrating his efforts on larger scale oil and acrylic paintings.

“Homare Ikeda: New Works” through September 13th.
