Dan Lam: DELICIOUS MONSTER at Hashimoto Contemporary

Dan Lam:

DELICIOUS MONSTER

May 4th - May 25th, 2019

Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Delicious Monster, a solo exhibition by Dallas, Texas based artist Dan Lam. Delicious Monster will be the artists inaugural solo exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary, in which she continues to explore the opposing themes of the beautiful and repulsive, the attractive and repulsive, and how often these two opposing sentiments can come from within the same source. Referencing these dichotomies, the works in Delicious Monster explore color and form while experimenting with new materials and layering processes.


For her latest body of work, Lam was inspired by the monstera deliciosa fruit, whose scientific name literally means ‘delicious monster.’ Resembling an ear of corn with a green exterior, this hexagon patterned fruit is sweet, delicious and tropical, yet it can cause severe throat and skin irritation if eaten before it has fully ripened. Fascinated by the fruits tempting contradictions, the works in Delicious Monster explores this relatable concept - patience is often tested by temptation, and the excitement and desire to have an experience before the appropriate moment can often result in dangerous consequences.


Exploring a variety of textures, from the shimmering iridescent to pointed spikes, Lam’s sculptures appear almost lifelike, as if they were living organisms from a psychedelic universe. Simultaneously alluring and unsettling, their textures, candy colored hues and organic shapes draw the viewer in, tempting you to touch them and enter their alternate universe.


Please join us Saturday, May 4th from 6pm - 8pm for the opening reception of Delicious Monster. The artist will be in attendance.


The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, May 25th.
