"Hikari Shimoda’s “Fantastic Planet, Goodbye Man” is a pastel-hued series of paintings where violent and disturbing elements are drowned out by lilac sparkles and pink bunnies (view our recent studio visit with the artist here). Though Shimoda takes inspiration from Anime, her work is painted with a loose expressiveness that adds a painterly quality to her fantastical visions. For this show, Shimoda nods to superhero tales to comment on the ways adults instill their hopes and dreams into children, whom she often depicts with flesh-wounds and scars to imply their loss of innocence". - Hi-Fructose Blog.  Hikari's show is on view at Corey Helford Gallery's Circa through August 23rd, 2014.  Take a look at our photos from opening night after the jump!
