Brighten up, little star


Hikari Shimoda
Conflating innocence with the adult, reveling in revealing the highest and basest of human tendencies that burn within each of us, and celebrating our status as the demi-gods of Earth, Hikari Shimoda’s paintings seem pastelly chroma-phantasmagoric celebrations of the cult of the human that simultaneously serve as reminders of the need to be as cautious and fearful of that cult as we are proud of it.
