Glancing at the Twin Peak

Tonight the Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present the opening for Tomokazu Matsuyama's
Glancing at the Twin Peak.

With Glancing at the Twin Peak, the artist makes reference to two titans of Japanese and American culture, respectively—Sanraku Kano and Frederic Remington. A master of the influential Kano school of painting in the late sixteenth century, Kano depicted riders on horseback in iconic images of masculinity that typified the era. Likewise, Remington, celebrated for his hypermasculine paintings of “cowboys and Indians,” spoke for a young nation coming of age at the end of the nineteenth century. Via Joshua Liner Gallery

The exhibition runs from March 6 to April 4, 2009

Reception is TONIGHT! Friday March 6th from 6-9 pm
