Many-eyed Monster

“Choosing to create only beauty feels artificial. Thus I create both ugliness and the beautiful. You cannot sever the two. The expression that results is a natural chaos. I project anarchy, anxiety, the grotesque, the absurd and the irrational into my work. By doing so I attain harmony. This is my art. Put simply, I paint humanity (the spirit).” Daisuke Ichiba

Mirror House

Mirage is part of an art installation series called “Desert X” which features site-specific work by new and emerging artists curated by artistic director Neville Wakefield. As part of the exhibit, California-based artist Doug Aitken created a house of mirrors inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and the American West. Situated at the junction of the San Jacinto Mountains and the Coachella Valley, Mirage acts as a kaleidoscope to reflect and distort the surrounding arid and beautiful landscape.
