SARAH CASCONE, ARTNET: DEVAN SHIMOYAMA
December 3, 2016
The artist’s work was the subject of a solo presentation at the booth of Los Angeles’s Samuel Freeman Gallery, a first time exhibitor at the fair.
The artist has utterly transformed the booth, painting the walls black and decorating them with glittery black banana leaves, attempting to draw a connection between Shimoyama’s brightly-colored self portraits and nature. The installation is completed by bedazzled white swings that hang from the ceiling.
