Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present Before Sunrise, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Asif Hoque. The show will open with a reception on Thursday, February 10 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM and will be on view through Saturday, March 19. This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery.
Developing from Hoque’s earlier works, these new paintings are populated with the signature figures of his personal mythology, borne from traditions of his Bangladeshi heritage, birthplace of Rome, and upbringing in southern Florida. However, the pieces presented in Before Sunrise embody growth at their core. Familiar characters, such as cupids, phoenixes, lions, and ceramic vessels, meet novel forms such as the Bengal tiger. Monumental in size, all of these works emanate the sensuality and exuberance of Brown joy.
We hope to see you at the gallery!
