Susumu Kamijo Takes Us To “The Motherland”

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

For a time, Susumu Kamijo was the poodle painter. It wasn’t so much about a poodle so much as it was the shapes and the composition that a poodle represents. A sort of manicuring of chaos, of something animal. It was always beautifully rendered and colored, abstracted to a point but most defiinitely a dog. Now, in his new solo show, The Motherland, on view at Venus Over Manhattan, Kamijo is still focusing on animals, canines, birds, a lamb, but with a new focus on color and shapes, patterns and what the viewer can perceive as both a figure and an abstraction.
