Rise Of The Underground, a two-person show featuring the artwork of October cover artist Jeremy Fish and Japan's Kenichi Yokono, opened this past weekend at Mark Moore Gallery in Los Angeles.

 

Each adopting the age-old craft of woodcutting through a distinctive contemporary technique, Fish and Yokono employ bold and enchanting cartoon-like narratives to illustrate quotidian and pop cultural excerpts. Unmistakably handmade and remarkably intriguing, Yokono’s woodblocks explore the "horrors of everyday life," while Fish’s paintings and cut-outs reveal untapped histories often swept under the rug. Seemingly innocuous at first observation, each work is intricately laced with undercurrents of the sinister and the foreboding, saturated with cultural reflection, psychoanalysis, and social commentary in a fusion of high and low aesthetics.

 

Following are a few images from the opening reception but this is a show you should definitely stop by and see in person.

 

Also here is our recent studio visit with Jeremy Fish...
