GAJIN FUJITA: Twilight Blush

An exhibition of new paintings and works at L.A. Louver

16 November – 30 December, 2006

Gajin Fujita PortraitL.A.
Louver is delighted to present a long-anticipated exhibition of new paintings and
works on paper by the Japanese-American artist Gajin Fujita. Fujita’s increasingly
sophisticated works reflect many cultural influences that range from the lush visuals
of traditional Japanese tattoos, screen painting from the Edo period and woodblock
prints by ukiyo- e artists, to contemporary Japanese cartoons and hip-hop culture.


 “ …the paintings present themselves as competing fields of moral and technical
mastery that coexist in their own accomplishment. The Renaissance compositions do
not ‘critique’ the Edo characters. The Edo characters do not ‘critique’ the graffiti
or vice versa. Everything is equal, and, insofar as the synthesis is complete, beautiful,
and just a little frightening in its insistence on our fragile mortality.”
Dave Hickey
