WILLIAM RIS GALLERY - "DREAM OF ROSES (RÊVE DE ROSES), a photographic collection of roses by Takashi Matsuzaki, has an Opening Reception on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 4 to 7 p.m. The exhibition continues on view through May 19, 2019. The solo show is the debut of Matsuzaki at William Ris Gallery and is the first time the gallery has presented an exclusive exhibition of photographed flowers.

“Takashi’s work is sensual, vivid, and captures the texture, color and contrasting structure of the rose,” Mary Cantone, owner-curator of William Ris Gallery, explained. “The imagery is both powerful and yet fragile at the same time, and it’s this dichotomy that appeals to me.” Indeed, the images captured by Matsuzaki are unlike stock photos one often sees of roses, giving an intimate, moody, at times avant garde, and multi-dimensional view of this oft photographed flower.
