Hajime Sorayama "1970-2010" Exhibition NYC Recap

For decades, celebrated Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama’s iconography has explored the themes of desire, pleasure and pain fusing these experiences in images of men, women, consumer goods and weaponry. On display now at the Gering & Lopez Gallery in New York is an encompassing retrospective spanning the last four decades of Sorayama’s illustrious career. Surrealistic depictions of Hollywood starlets, pin-up models and lustrous chrome skinned robots in erotic poses is as much a commentary on our conceptions of glamor and sexual desire, as well as the shifting mores and ideal of society progressing through the years of wars and progression of technology. The exhibit runs until February 19 so be sure to stop by and check it out if you’re in the vicinity.
