Naoto Hattori is “Out There” and Amazing

by Sponsored PostPosted on

Naoto Hattori (whom we featured in HF vol.7) makes small, detailed paintings of wonderful “Day Mares.” They look like tangential worlds cross-pollinating, colliding. Carl Sagan, Dali, and Leary must be in Hattori’s mix somewhere; sprinkled with a dose of David Lynch perhaps. I can’t stop looking at this flying owl-faced angel person. It says “Hello, motherfucker. Shouldn’t you be doing something else? Fine, keep staring. I’ll just stare back.” It’s a Mona Lisa-like effect, which is proabably a result of Hattori’s numerous tiny reinterpretations of Ms. Mona he’s done. See the artist’s most recent solo show at M Modern and a few of our favorites here!
