Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Inside Mirror, an exhibition by Brooklyn-based artist duo CHIAOZZA. The exhibition will be CHIAOZZA’s inaugural presentation at Hashimoto Contemporary. Their collaborative practice explores intersections of the natural and imagined world, using play as a tool to bring to highlight the wondrous, magical and humorous in the everyday.

Inside Mirror focuses on distinct bodies of work in the artists practice: Bouquet Paintings, Pulp Paintings, Wooden Wall Works and Paper Pulp Sculptures. Tying the works together is the artists’ interest in harmonization of color, movement and form, as well as a love of materials such as paper pulp. The artists pull from various sources for inspiration, including jazz improvisation, Suiseki - the Japanese art of stone appreciation, the exploration and abstraction of forms, and natural light phenomena.

About their process, CHIAOZZA states, “As an artist duo, we are in constant dialogue, engagement, interaction, play and critique. The scrutiny we place upon ourselves and our work is a consistent exercise of re-examining our craft, form and concept. We are reflecting pools for each other’s ideas, magnifying each other’s passing thoughts through physical, mental and spiritual rigor. Inside Mirror is a poetic nod to this collaborative, contemplative practice that makes up our day-to-day experience and guides our studio investigations, from paintings of surreal still lives, sculptures of amorphous lumps, wall structures of reflected color, experiments with sculpting mediums and more.”

A common thread is a search for drawing out the substance, giving form to the imagined and making the unexpected feel harmonious. Similar to how one needs light to see a reflection, Inside Mirror hopes to collect the luminous, and bounce it back to both the viewer and artists.

Please join us Saturday, January 14th from 6pm to 8pm for the opening of Inside Mirror. The artists will be in attendance.

The exhibition will be on view Saturday, January 14th to Saturday, February 4th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email NYC Director, Jennifer Rizzo at jenn@hashimotocontemporary.com
