How many exhibition works:
Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Floating Worlds - the gallery's debut solo exhibition with Los Angeles-based painter Stacey Rozich. The vibrant and richly detailed watercolor and gouache works on paper depict mystic scenes from the artist's folklore.
The alternate realm Rozich has created through her prismatic work is equal parts familiar and strange - a bird-like creature stops in a garden for a smoke break, a plastic bag sits beneath the seesaw where he sits and a miniaturized doppelgänger hands him a lighter. More spectral scenes depict curious rituals where cloaked and masked figures are surrounded by peculiar iconography.
The artist states, "Compelled by the enigmatic notion that our everyday terrestrial lives may be coexisting with another fully-functioning surrealistic plane alongside our own, I have sought to create this world through a series of vivid scenarios and portraits. As it turns out, this surreality may not be so different from our own reality: you’ll find that moments of miscommunication, embarrassment and awkward first dates can still occur regardless of your astral plane."
