Gathering Whispers – A solo exhibition by Edwin Ushiro — Los Angeles, USA — 12-30 JUL, 2014
Giant Robot 2, 2062 Sawtelle Boulevard, Los Angeles CA 90025
Giant Robot is proud to present Gathering Whispers – a solo exhibition by Edwin Ushiro. Edwin Ushiro's work contains a sense of nostalgia even for a person who didn't grow up in Maui. The subjects of his works will range from beautiful, warm, and comfortable. One piece will include a not-so-obvious homage to Super Sentai (like Power Rangers). Kids will be jumping out of a pick-up truck as if they're embarking on a battle against a kaiju. A piece about a bridge built by Okinawan craftspersons encapsulates ideas of change as it has been a subject of demolition to widen a road for more traffic. Another piece features sparklers which scares off bad spirits.
