[Private Sale] Ly’s canvas work 2 pieces

Introducing from CURIO private sales: Canvas pieces by Ly.   |Is LUV a self-portrait of Ly!?     Always painted in grayscale, an imaginary character called LUV appears in Ly's work. LUV is said to be Ly's expression of memories, emotions and imagination. I think LUV takes the role of Ly's self-portrait in that case.   Ly depicts LUV's eyes always looking back at the viewer no matter where we look at the painting. It feels as if this fictional character LUV is communicating with us beyond words.     From Instagram account of ly_painter     There are LUVs in the paintings we are introducing today. What do you think these LUVs are conversing with you? It's kind of exciting to think that way.   If you are interested, please feel free to contact us. >>> https://curio-w.jp/en/contact/ Details are as follows:   LOT:20220628A01 LY [Untitled] Acrylic on canvas Signed by the...

Here is a unique work information of Yuichi Hirako's "Leaf Beetle 2" 2014 from CURIO private sales.       |Yuichi Hirako questions how we relate to the nature   A mythical character that looks like part human and the part plant often appears in the work of Yuichi Hirako. And it is said that this being is indispensable to his work to symbolize the relationship between nature and mankind.   I think that the artist expresses his ideal world that nature and humanity live in mutual resonance with each other, as we human are also part of nature after all.   However, inexplicable natural disaster on a global scale has been happening since. Isn't this a warning from nature to human beings that we have been behaving arrogantly and egotistically?     From website NewSphere     The work we are introducing today feels a little different from his...
