 Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present I Can Taste the Sun, a solo exhibition by San Francisco-based artist Casey Gray. Utilizing his signature, complex masking and aerosolized acrylic technique to create densely detailed and symbolic works, Gray has created a series of paintings, sculptures and works on paper that celebrate the simple joys in life - from the idyllic landscapes of California to a perfect summer picnic. 

Drawing from the world around him, Gray seamlessly incorporates historical painting tropes alongside studio ephemera to create surreal yet plausible still lives and scenes. Each painting is an invitation to the viewer to decode the symbolism and underlying narrative or statement held within the work, like an unfolding poem. The exhibition explores “the power of nature and the outdoors to nourish and heal.” 

Dynamic new sculptural works and experimental works on paper will also be debuted at I Can Taste the Sun, showcasing Gray’s multi-faceted practice. A continuation of his wavy symbol paintings, the sculptures pull individual elements such as a flower or tree into an undulating, three dimensional object. Illustrative and graphic works on paper serve as snapshots of moments between paintings, rounding out the artist’s sun soaked world. 

Please join us for I Can Taste the Sun, opening February 8th with an evening reception from 6pm - 9pm where the artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through February 29th.  For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email us at sf@hashimotocontemporary.com.
