Kenichi Hoshine just sent me this:
“I recently read about how Jason Noble was diagnosed with cancer and is receiving treatment. Jason is a musician and has been involved in bands such as Rodan, Shipping News and Rachel’s and is a pivotal figure in the Louisville, KY music scene. I don’t know him personally, but his work has greatly influenced me in the past. I wanted to auction off one of my original paintings on ebay with 100% of the proceeds going to Jason and his medical costs.”
This is the painting Kenichi is auctioning off, with an opening bid of $0.01 (and no reserve!). The auction closes in a week. If you’d like to help Jason Noble, place a bid here.
KENICHI HOSHINE INTERVIEW
Where are you living these days?
I’m living and working in Brooklyn, NY.
How much of Brooklyn is there in your work?
I moved here in March of this year so I can’t say that there is much of Brooklyn in my work. I don’t think my environment affects my work too much.
You have an interesting way of veiling an image, covering elements with a wash. Can you tell me a bit about your process and the way your style has evolved into what it is now?
Most of my work you have been seeing lately have layers of beeswax over them. I have always found images that are obscured or fragmented to be more interesting than “complete” pictures. I am drawn towards implied images that suggest certain moods and narratives. More often than not, I will draw or paint a “complete” image then delete/erase/sand parts of it until I achieve the desired picture. I probably spend more time editing the image than actually putting it down on the panel or paper.
I can’t keep it secret any longer, I am extremely excited to announce the first-ever Booooooom art show, Tangents!
I have joined forces with the folks at Lifetime Collective to bring together six amazing artists for a group show here in Vancouver. November 13th. 8PM. Lifetime Space (68 5th Ave West).
Three locals, and three out of towners, all supremely talented. It is going to be an amazing show.
