"Anticipating Spring", 2017. Color Viscosity Etching.
K. Caraccio Studio presents
Fri, March 17th, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Taka Maruno's skillfully rendered, richly colored and expressive abstract etchings reflect a relationship with nature begun as a child, playing in the fields and woods and streets of suburban Tokyo. His memories of the sensual joy of being in nature - the green smell of the lawn, the sound of the wind creeping up on him, the brightness of a dandelion on the asphalt after the rain, the wide sky above - these experiences sank deep into his mind and heart, and their memory informs his art, bringing fresh expression to the centuries old art of printmaking.
The show runs through April 8th (by appointment only). Please contact Kathy at 212-594-9662or email email@example.com
K.Caraccio Studio and Gallery is located at 315 West 39th Street, Room 505.

“Containment, Connection and Contemplation: Three solo exhibitions, held in a spectacular former photography studio loft, brings together three international artists [Kathryn Cameron, Nadia Martinez, and Taka Maruno] using different media who are exploring the intimate relationship between nature and man. The exhibition features works in a dialogue with the viewer that evoke an ambiance between poetry and structure, machinery and subtlety.”
Containment, Connection and Contemplation
These three solo exhibitions are curated by Venice-based artistic director and curator Maurizio Pellegrin, who has had a hand in an impressive 150 solo and 400 group exhibitions around the world. That’s a lot of art. These works, in particular, are all tied together because they collectively explore humanity’s relationship to both nature and technology, which are two classic similar-but-different forces in the world.
While the works on view are mostly sculptural, each artist takes a unique approach to composition and materials. Rather than exploring the tech vs. nature theme in ways that might be heavy-handed or passé, the ideas predominantly come forth in how each piece is created. Kathryn Cameron builds her sculptures using items reminiscent of tree bark or leaves, Nadia Martinez makes pieces out of computer parts, and Taka Maruno creates soft and colorful print installations that simultaneously recall imagery like bacteria, street art, and flowers.
