"Dark Chocolate Japan" Featuring the Work of Carlos Aleman
Opening Reception: Friday, August 28, at 6:30 pm
On Exhibit August 27 through October 10
In the spring of 2013, Carlos Aleman made a short trip to Kyoto during cherry blossom week. He returned home to Sunrise, Florida and recorded his impressions of Japan as drawings and paintings. Often working in 'dark chocolate' acrylic paints, he integrated manga, anime, geisha, maiko and samauri into a whimsical style of pop surrealism, ranging from the finely rendered to the loose and experimental. We cordially invite you to experience these reflections of Japan for yourself. For more information, please visit the artist's website.
