Takashi Murakami: The Deep End of the Universe Exhibit at the Albright Knox Museum
His highly visually stimulating works contain a seemingly endless series of equally weighted, perfectly rendered focal areas that pull and bounce our eyes from one area of a composition to another. From his incredible characters to his signature animated flowers, even the smallest detail compels our attention and immerses us in narrative. These characteristics are heightened in the installation he designed for the Albright-Knox: a monumental series of paintings, totaling more than 150 feet, one of the most ambitious the artist has ever created. Together, these works, which are debuting for the first time in their entirety here in Buffalo, literally envelop us in parallel arenas of riotous color and fields of gold.
