New Shows by Cheryl Pope and Kenichi Yokono Open At Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City This Saturday

A show of new mixed-media sculpture, photography, video, and installation by Chicago-based artist Cheryl Pope opens at Mark Moore Gallery this Saturday, June 28. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, is from 6 to 8 pm. 

Says the gallery, Pope's latest work "is a continuation of the research conducted for her Just Yell exhibition in 2013, which investigates segregation, youth violence, power, and privilege as relating specifically to the bodily identity. 

In Gallery Two are equally exceptional pieces -- in this case painted wood carvings -- by Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono. Here's what the gallery has to say about the startling new work:

Yokono's bold and enchanting cartoon-like narratives illustrate quotidian and topical excerpts from "the horrors of everyday life" ....Sourcing prevalent avenues of modern Japanese culture like anime, Manga, and yokai horror films, Kenichi Yokono’s meticulous carvings contrast fraught notions of globalization and consumerism with the overwhelming "cuteness" (or kawaii) found in popular Japanese consumer culture. Phantasmagorical and raw in nature, Yokono’s work is rife with disturbingly ominous overtones and explicit imagery, steeped in both ukiyo-e painting traditions...

Mark Moore Gallery is located at 5790 Washington Blvd, 6-8pm
