Mapping the Dragons Exhibition - 3 Artists in Uncharted Territory
Unnamed Road Gallery Presents Mapping the Dragons, an intimate group show of three artists who venture outside the borders.
Mapping the Dragons presents three very different artists who each in their own way confront unmapped and unvisited territories. It is then not entirely coincidental that the paradoxical, the surreal, and the symbolic come to play in the work of each, in surprising and powerful ways.
Gayle Friedman received Artist Fellowship Grants from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities from 2018 - 2022. In June 2018, her first solo show, Measuring the Weight of Longing, opened at International Arts and Artists at Hillyer Gallery, Washington, DC.
Hikaru Hayakawa is a sculptor, painter, and photographer whose work focuses on scale, time, human and geological history, paradox, and juxtaposition. He is captivated by maps and globes, and often incorporates them into his art, using them to communicate in intuitive and nonverbal ways. Born in Osaka, Japan, Hikaru received a BFA from Kyoto Seika University. He moved to Los Angeles in 1987 and later earned his MFA at Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design, (now Otis College of Art and Design).
Armando Adrian-Lopez is a self-taught painter and mixed-media assemblage sculptor. He was born and raised in a small village in southwest Mexico, immigrating to the US in 1988. He is a Purepecha native, an indigenous pre-Columbian people with a distinct language and culture dating from at least the 10th century. Armando's work stems from Mexican folk art traditions often combined with modern and surreal elements and themes.
