Kenichi Yokono: New Work

Since our first mention of Kenichi Yokono in 2006, the Japanese artist has been working at a furious pace and garnering attention from gallerists and collectors alike. For the past three years, Mark Moore Gallery has been showing Yokono's work during the Pulse Contemporary Art Fairs, while in 2007 the gallery gave the artist his first solo show stateside. The forthcoming show at Mark Moore Gallery includes eight new pieces (click above for expanded views) in Yokono's signature woodblock print style, building upon discordant themes—like beauty and the grotesque, intricacy and alienation—inherent to his blood red-and-white layered compositions.
