The Old Greyhound Bus Station

1 North Main Street, Las Vegas, NV, 89101

Set in Las Vegas’ recently defunct Greyhound Bus Station, the exhibition allows for a recontextualization of each artist’s paintings, removed from the major art centers in which they work, within a space previously animated and defined by its use. As a former bus station, the exhibition venue can be understood as a crossroads—a center of exchange. Koichi Sato’s memory of the Greyhound Station animates his depiction of characters that may have previously traversed its halls. Sato depicts cowboys, shoppers, musicians, and gamblers. Their garb, props, and general mise-en-scène, imbue each subject with a sense of familiarity and humor. Adding to the dialogue, Susumu Kamijo presents a selection of poodle portraits, continuing his exploration into color, pattern, and composition, albeit with a more heavily abstracted approach. Finally, two new paintings by Jonas Wood employ landscapes, a recurring theme in his work. Here Jonas depicts not only a garden scape, but also a related interior. Scale, color, pattern and composition take center stage in both works, acting as the driving force as Wood seeks to further investigate the fundamental idiosyncrasies of painting.
