exhibitions featuring pairs of artists whose work is sometimes overtly,
sometimes inadvertently linked through the intimacies of living together, Shoshana Wayne Gallery highlights the paper constructions of Rakuko Naito and the paintings of Tadaaki Kuwayama

Lao Lianben

Lao Lianben’s abstractions are both stark and sincere; through an intelligent use of texture, the subtlest indication of black or gray becomes scar, soot, or spirit. His compositions tend toward the monochromatic (the occasional pops of ochre or stone blue aside) and reference Buddhist literature and culture.
