This event has ended.

Rejecting the rigid and competitive world of his youth, Hiromitsu Kuroo embraced the artistic world, where creativity, individuality, and self-expression are held in high esteem. Being a Japanese expatriate in New York, Hiromitsu struggles with his cultural identity and his current New York existence. Through his work, he attempts to bridge these two very different worlds.

Born in Yokohama, Japan, Hiromitsu is a collage painter working in the tradition of Origami (the art of folding paper). In Hiromitsu’s case, the canvas serves as the paper, and the gentle manipulation of its surface is how he conveys intricate textural landscapes. The multiple layers of colors in his folded canvases are revealed by sanding the canvas surface. Interested in the juxtaposition and vitality of collaged pieces of canvas, he uses them to accentuate other emerging shapes in his compositions.
