Life and Death Cycle Diagrams
Aug 8, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| FREE
Cloud City announces Life and Death Cycle Diagrams a show of new works on paper, mixed media and animation by Yusuke Okada and Owen Cook.
The Opening reception on Saturday August 8th will be the only time the work is on view.
Okada and Cook are self taught New York based artists who come from Japan and California, respectively. Life and Death Cycle Diagrams is a collection of their most recent artistic renderings of life and death in the city.
Okada works primarily with ink and watercolor on paper, while Cook works with mixed media, often making bas-reliefs with aluminum, plaster and cardboard. Both artists have been making animation as well, and the show will feature projections of newly animated video pieces.
Many of the works express a ham-fisted narrative of humor and melodrama. They are crude but detailed portraits of “life cycles” in the modern era. Vignettes that bleed paranoia and silliness outside the lines that attempt to contain them.
Free beer will be provided while supplies last. DJs Keegan Cooke and Cyanide Tooth will be on the turntables.
The opening reception for Life and Death Cycle Diagrams will be held at Cloud City at 85 N 1st St, Brooklyn, NY 11249 on August 8th at 7pm
