Ravi Zupa : “Riches”
SAN FRANCISCO - Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Riches, a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new works by Colorado-based artist Ravi Zupa.
Drawing inspiration from from printmakers of the German Renaissance like Hans Holbein and Albrecht Durer, Riches is at once a celebration of and departure from classical painting and printmaking techniques. In his signature style, Zupa combines Eastern and Western religious imagery to create a unique universe of historic characters and anthropomorphic creatures.
Taking cues from Renaissance portraiture and Eastern iconography, Zupa creates a personal mythology which straddles cultures. Much of the work composing Riches features small, often enigmatic scenes that highlight a need, motivation or aspect of modern life. These scenes are described by the iconic bird-pot characters lifted from the odd, surreal works of Hieronymus Bosch and Bruegel the Elder.
Please join us for Riches, opening Saturday, August 4 with an evening reception from 6pm - 10pm. The exhibition will be on view until Saturday, August 25. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
