poster for Jason Teraoka "Heroes, Villains and Victims"

This event has ended.

Jason Teraoka is an artist and a 4th generation Japanese-American from Hawaii.
It makes no difference if they're young or old, Teraoka's portraits range from the downright neighborly to imaginative figures who look as if they just jumped out of a movie or comic book. Against plain backgrounds, they exist with expressive faces that show disgust, horror, or cruel cynicism.

Teraoka admits that his works display the influence of Alfred Hitchcock's classic suspense films of the 50s and 60s and his camera style. While Teraoka's works resemble imaginary movie posters or still photographs, the emotional expressions portrayed tear them from the reality of everyday life, and Teraoka sheds new light on our extant subconscious thoughts of fear and anxiety.

This exhibition will feature 22 new paintings and 9 new drawings.



From 2007-11-24 To 2007-12-12
