We look forward to seeing you at the opening of this wonderful and colorful show! Join us to inaugurate the Mina Hamada and Sozen show with some great tunes and fresh drinks on the 2nd of May @ the Galo Art Gallery
Zosen and Mina Hamada will present their first Duo show in Italy " Yin and Yang" , at the Galo Art Gallery.
Based on the basic concept of traditional Chinese philosophical thought, the YinYang designates the combination of two principles indissoluble, antithetical and complementary combination an interaction from which the totality of the phenomenal world proceeds. Yin represents the feminine, the earth, the darkness, the black. Yang, the male, the sky, the light, the white. Dynamic symbol, it is the contradictory dual YinYang not typical of Western civilization, but becomes the archetype of the harmony of opposites, not defined in absolute terms but relative terms, since nothing can be considered totally Yin or Yang as one naturally contains part of the other
The work of Mina Hamada is a play of colors intensely tied to a study of forms, dynamic lines of floating ethereal at the same time delicate and vibrant on the canvas. Her artistic language was born as a simplification of nature, its forms that tell stories hidden by an abstract approach, passing through the genuine spirit of childhood, that vital energy that vibrates in every element.
Zosen develops more direct iconography and symbolism deeply tied to the folklore of different cultures. Combinations of Mexican wrestlers and African sculptures, calavera or masks the artist modernizes through the use of color and an ironic approach . Zosen models a symbolic world in which it is clear that the strength of the painting lies in the painting itself, in its bright color and its related chromatic contrasts, a world that simultaneously speaks and interacts with a vivid interest in the social criticism.
Following the theme of YinYang, Zosen and Mina Hamada have created works together as well as individually for the exhibition in the Galo Art Gallery in Turin which will inaugurate on the 02 of May 2015.
