Artist Saya Okubo will hold her second solo exhibition, They, in the span of two years at WAITINGROOM gallery this June. Okubo describes her work as an “act of exploring the existence of objects and people in two-dimensional space.” Indeed, her often monumental canvases are based on human figure drawings from her daily studies. The bold contour lines and daubs of paint that embellish these surfaces create symbolic images, but at the same time her paintings retain a sense of materiality. The 15 new paintings in They are made on sheets of corrugated plastic, focusing on human poses and body parts.
*WAITINGROOM asks you to refrain from coming to the gallery if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Visitors must wear a mask and entry may be restricted if the gallery space is crowded.
