Concept

and more…

Cavernous Perspectives explores the full scope of humanity and what lies beneath. The works presented challenge the common representation of a collective consciousness that is overly binary or morally pat. The portraits of both Gregory Malphurs and Lin Fei Fei offer viewers the opportunity to reflect on the complexity of the human experience as a whole. Cecy Colichon’s conceptual abstraction and non-corporeal creations foster an associative atmosphere for the observer to ponder their own cavernous subconscious.

A mix of collage and painting in Malphurs’ emotionally charged and fragmented portraits use deconstruction to create a world that holds comfort around ambivalence and recognizes a universal bond of personal struggle. Lin’s ethereal portraits also live in the acceptance of darkness. As faces surface from an abyss into a clear forefront, from shadow to light, they bring facets of mankind deemed taboo to gleam.

This emerging movement takes on a multi-dimensional form in Colichon’s works, often a visual representation of music or sounds, and provides a vehicle for thought and transportation to other realms. The showcased pieces bring the intricacy of mortals to the palm of one’s hand as they journey the viewer from self to the unified ethos, then, with a new understanding, back to self.

About

ART – A New powerful way to change the world.

The first gallery in Los Angeles dedicated to the works of Japanese artists

How many Japanese artists do you know? Ken Watanabe, Takashi Murakami or perhaps, Steve Aoki. But of these three, Takashi Murakami is the only contemporary artist. Ken is an actor, and Steve is a son of the famous steakhouse owner who became a popular DJ.and more…
I opened the Speedy Gallery in Los Angeles in May 2019. My love for art knows no bounds, held many art events on my own as a collector, from shows where Chef Watson (AI) competes with artists to museum exhibitions that exclusively featured exotic rare plants from around the world. These are more than art exhibitions; they take people by surprise and joy, showing significance of art events to those who weren’t so interested.

I’m constantly thinking about unique ways to curate art events; hence, I established the Speedy Gallery to introduce artists that are recognized in Japan yet have potential to be celebrated worldwide.

Branding Through Art

I wouldn’t call myself an art producer. I’ve spent many years in corporate brand consulting for Asian clients from Japan to China. Now, I’m planning to brand Japanese art globally through this gallery.

It was easy for companies to build a brand in the past. Before internet, television and magazines were the main media of 20th century. More you invest on marketing and advertisement, more exposure you had. But the rise of multimedia and social media changed the game. Building awareness of the product and services are not enough. Today, it’s about sharing. Sharing the information, users’ benefits, and the experiences with others through media. Companies have expanded beyond television and internet, creating actual spaces where people can directly interact to share the experiences. Many successful brands create these interactive spaces, share the experience through social media and get the people to love their brand. I believe that Speedy Gallery will be beneficial to the people of Los Angeles and the community at large.

Connecting with Society Through Art

Of course, Speedy Gallery will sell amazing artworks like other galleries, and all proceeds will be donated to charities. But it’s more than that. Speedy Gallery is a community space for every art lover and for those who wants to make changes in the world.

Through my career, I have obtained deep understanding of the internet businesses and how the digital natives think. They understand that internet allows people to explore the unknown corners of the societies. They utilized the power of social network to change the society. Take Ice Bucket Challenge, for example, it helped raise awareness of ALS, the Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, Greta Thunberg’s environmental activism and more.

Please come visit Speedy Gallery to enjoy the art and make change in the world.
