Preview: Haroshi’s “Pain” at StolenSpace Gallery

"Pain" is an evocative title for Haroshi's new body of work for his upcoming solo show at StolenSpace Gallery, a series of sculptures made entirely from broken, used and abused skate decks. "Pain" is a familiar word for skateboarders, most of whom have multitudinous stories of broken bones and scrapes as a result of their favorite sport. But Haroshi's work goes deeper. Though the sculptures are fun and facetious, the artist says they also apprehend emotional pain. They reveal a hidden vulnerability behind the humor. "Pain" will be on view October 10 through November 3 at StolenSpace in London. Take a look at some of the work in the show after the jump.
