Hikari Shimoda's New Solo Show "Silence and Affirmation"

We are very happy to announce Hikari Shimoda's new major solo exhibition entitled  "Silence and Affirmation", unveiling on Saturday, July 11th at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles.

The new series of 22 paintings is perhaps Hikari's most topical to date. She shares: “2020 has been an unforgettable year of drastic change for our world. Many problems and issues, which the world has ignored for a long time, have been brought to light."

"I believe deep-rooted social problems pose a risk of undermining individual identity and bring out anxiety, which asks human beings to consider the meaning of their existence. I’ve focused on creating works for this solo show for a year. It was a year ago that I started to reconsider my own existence and continued to think about how humans should be. During this time I learned the power of ‘yes’ or affirmation. I’m praying for a world where we human beings are not bound by any of our physical attributes and to be affirmed as we are."

"There’s another word in my show title – ‘silence.’ I picked this word to state the idea of an unbreakable soul. Nobody can conquer or violate another person’s heart. From silence to affirmation, these works are a glimpse of the world from my own point of view; to respect one another’s souls, and affirm our existence, free from judgment. It’s a message to the world from deep inside of my heart.”
