The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
Liz Larner’s presentation at the Aspen Art Museum showcases the artist’s long-standing investigation into the possibilities and poetics of sculpture. X (2013), a mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture installed outdoors on the AAM Commons, highlights the artist’s use of line, color, volume, and form to produce new relationships between the viewer and the surrounding environment.
