The Future According To Sashie Masakatsu
There is a strange beauty inside the destitute future that artist Sashie Masakatsu has painted for us. Above the wreck and rubble of what could only be left over pizza boxes and old cell phone parts floats bright spherical orbs of promising architecture. Bright neon signs, soda vending machines and shop fronts gather around each other in globes that appear in motion although they sit still as oil on canvas.
The intricate details of each of these ball-shaped infrastructure can be seen up close beginning October 19 when Masakatsu opens his latest exhibition entitled Coacervate at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.
