EXHIBIT 02 // APRIL 2014
"The union of Oda’s tantalizing succulents and Silverman’s pottery, which exudes its own exotic allure, has yielded objects that somehow transcend art and nature into the realm of the sublime. The show is not to be missed."
- Architectural Digest April 2014
Fascinated by the relationship of art to nature, Chariots on Fire has commissioned renowned LA-based potter Adam Silverman to create a new set of work filled with the plant artistry of Kohei Oda, owner of Qusamura, an award-winning plant shop in Japan. While the two will work independently they will be sharing a common vision based on their love of the natural world and the age-old harmony between pot and plant. The result is an exchange of ideas designed like the best of relationships, formed by common interest and a shared understanding of space and form.
On View 23 April - 7 May 2014. Reception with Artists 27 April 2014.
EXHIBIT 01 // AUGUST 2013
Please join us to welcome Makoto Kagoshima of Fukuoka, Japan for his first solo show in the USA.
