Going GaGa Over YOSHIDA.

Ralph Pucci debuted a new show last night in conjunction with Jean-Yves Noblet for artist Kimiko YOSHIDA. Unfortunately, we were unable to attend the opening but we were lucky enough to get a sneak preview earlier in the week by Mr. Pucci himself. The Paintings of YOSHIDA are an (incomplete) attempt at monochrome color: the artist sees in the monochrome a symbol of infinity – the unattainable infinity of time, the inexhaustible infinity of the gaze – where the figure of the artist tends to disappear. What is visible in the Paintings is a demonstrative misuse or diversion of objects of everyday life. The artist diverts gowns, shoes, salad bowls, and handbags into hairstyles of the period of Louis XIV, antique jewelry, or historical costumes.

By diverting objects of everyday life and fashion accessories, fragments belonging to the haute couture or to the history of art, the
Paintings transform the works of PICASSO, MATISSE, GAUGUIN, REMBRANDT, RUBENS, DELACROIX, TIEPOLO, and WATTEAU (we can't help but think that Lady G and the Haus of GaGa should pick up the "Telephone" and set up a date with this incredibly gifted artist).

Since she fled her homeland to escape the mortifying servitude and humiliating fate of Japanese women, Kimiko YOSHIDA – through what is called “self-portraits” – has refined and amplified a feminist stance of protest, cultivated and distanced from “current affairs”: against contemporary cliches of seduction, against voluntary servitude of women, against “identity” defined by appurtenances and “communities”, against the stereotypes of “gender” and the determinism of heredity.
It's a fantastic exhibition and we highly recommend you learn more about her work here. And just for fun, we've included Lady GaGa's SIXTH consecutive #1 single "Telephone" below. (We're officially obsessed with this video!) Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Initially... a tad disturbing. By the forth image I was hooked. Very striking imagery, hauntingly beautiful.

Since my eye is drawn immediately to the bright whites and bright yellows, I think of "light sculpture"! The image with the draping scarf and chains in particular--reminds me of bring LEDs.
Love it!
