Opening Reception, Friday, December 8, 2017

Yuji Hiratsuka and Candace Miller

Yuji Hiratsuka“The human body along with other elements – fruits, vegetables, furniture, animals, etc. – have been my most recent focus.”

“The enigmatic figures I draw are reflections of the human conditions that people often find themselves in, in their daily lives: humor, wryness, satire, whimsy, irony, paradox, pathos or mismatch.”

“My figures also employ a state of motion or movement suggesting an actor/actress who narrates a story in a play.” … Yuji Hiratsuka

Gallery guests were intrigued with the artists discussions.

“My work for this show explores life, death, sex and transitions through cabinets of curiosities and a sculptural tableau.” … Candace Miller

Candace Millers delighted guests with tales of her Cabinets of Curiosities.

Questions from guests always lead to a deeper understanding of the artist’s intent.

Candace Miller and Bill Durovchec
