Do you want to know how the sky looked in New York City in February, March, and April of 2023, this year?
I’m sure you’re interested, curious, capable of falling in love and experiencing awe with it!
Do you want to know how the sky looks in different places at different times?
I’m sure you wish that she, Miya Ando, would do it with your hometown too, her art, as she did with several skies, even though we’re on the same planet and live under the same sky!
In Los Angeles, represented by the Wilding Cran Gallery, her current exhibition is named „Sky Atlas.“ Quite fitting, considering that Los Angeles is known for its unique light and sky.
However, the majority of these photographs are from New York City, where the female artist is currently based, having grown up between Japan and the United States. So, Miya’s work is a blend of both Eastern and Western culture. Japanese titles, American Sky, metallic medium, and subjects that are elusive, all while perhaps representing the most ephemeral of all: clouds.
A flamingo sky above New York City.
A sea of clouds floats over Santa Cruz.
I thought it was a dream.
In love with you!
But close your eyes for just one moment, and the moment is gone. The color. The shape. A different sky. Lettin’ go does not come that easily.
C, I’m never getting used to you being gone! C-loud that should be called C-quiet ..
The recorded time makes the artwork scientific, you can purchase one of the artworks as well, holding onto those clouds of that second forever and ever and ever-ever.
