Though the pictures of Shin Hamada range from vast urban landscapes to microcosms of the city, all his work has a distinct slice-of-life, even voyeuristic, feel – getting up close to rocks on the ground, or the window of a family restaurant, scenes we would not notice in a daily rhythm. He actually dabbles in pottery as well, a total realization of his seeming fascination with material, texture and the often-underappreciated surfaces of things. His new solo exhibition represents yet another step of Hamada’s striving for experimentation.
