Each painting becomes a portal, inviting viewers to step into a world where pixels and dreams converge. The first canvas, titled "Digital Dawn," introduces us to the metaversal landscape bathed in the soft hues of a virtual sunrise. Kanashiwa's signature pink-haired girls, their contemplative expressions illuminated by the gentle glow, stand on the threshold of this digital realm. The scene evokes a sense of awakening, as if the characters are on the cusp of a new consciousness within the infinite possibilities of the metaverse. Moving deeper into the series, "Ethereal Echoes" captures the essence of digital memories. The canvas portrays translucent figures wandering through pixelated reflections of moments past. Kanashiwa skillfully weaves a narrative of nostalgia within the metaversal labyrinth, exploring how virtual spaces become repositories of our collective and individual memories. In "Binary Ballet," the artist depicts a mesmerizing dance of code, where pink-haired avatars gracefully move in synchronization with the algorithmic rhythms of the metaverse. The fusion of the organic and the digital creates a surreal ballet that speaks to the harmony found within the seemingly chaotic dance of virtual existence. As the series progresses, "Spectral Serenity" draws viewers into a serene metaversal oasis. Pink-haired figures float amidst ethereal landscapes, their expressions conveying a sense of tranquility that transcends the boundaries of the physical and the digital. Kanashiwa prompts us to question whether such serenity is achievable within the complexities of our interconnected, digital lives. The final canvas, "Transcendent Pixels," serves as the crescendo of the series. Here, the pink-haired protagonists stand at the nexus of the metaversal labyrinth, their forms merging with cascading streams of pixels. The piece suggests a transcendence of boundaries, a merging of self with the ever-expanding digital universe—a poignant reflection on the evolving relationship between humanity and technology. Sumomo Kanashiwa's "Pixelated Reverie" series becomes more than a collection of paintings; it is a profound exploration of the metaversal experience. Through her art, Kanashiwa invites us to contemplate the intersection of dreams and pixels, encouraging a reflection on the ways in which the digital realm intertwines with our understanding of self and existence. Each canvas is a chapter in this visual story, a testament to the boundless creativity that arises when one navigates the metaversal labyrinth.

  • Travelers Mind Map
    Located in New Orleans, LA
    Born in New Orleans, Horton Humble is a self-taught American painter. His debut show in 2007, entitled Debris, featured a series of paintings using wood from the Hurricane Katrina wreckage centered on themes of a lost city and water as a powerful force. In 2008, he embarked on a one-year journey through Africa for his next series Transit Urban, which included twelve paintings using local traditional fabrics depicting the energy of the people, land and culture. Each piece was drafted on site and later accompanied him on his other travels from Europe to US. Enchanted by the old and mestizo city, he returned to Lisbon in 2012 where he lived for almost three years and created The Lisbon Series influenced by the discovery of a new medium; ceramics and its modeling techniques. After this productive period in Portugal, Humble again returned home and established his studio with a group of fellow artists in New Orleans and co-founded the Level Artist Collective in 2015. At this time, his paintings on wood panels captured his impressions of a post- Katrina city represented inside of human head figures transitioning his previous subject matter into a new territory (US) and its social problematic. In 2017, Horton Humble was a resident artist at the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans and named “one of the most talented young painters producing in the South today” by Bradley Sumrall, curator of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (Curator's Choice, Country Roads Magazine). Through the summer he created his first public sculpture in steel, The Guardian, commissioned by the Helis Foundation for the Pyodras Corridor project- Sculpture for New Orleans. Currently, Humble is creating his most ambitious work, large-scale canvases in which he is releasing the formality of his detail obsession into a more dynamic and expressive work. Horton Humble is a founding member of LEVEL Collective and was a 2015/2017 nominee for the United States Artists Fellowship. His works are included in public and private collections, showcased at the Poydras Corridor, LA; Prizm Art Fair, FL; Atlanta Contemporary Biennial, GA; Ohr-O`Keefe Museum of Art, MS; Luciano´s...
