When does a soul become dyed with the color of its thoughts? These large images both face themselves and face away. Reaching and spiraling both inward and upward, they are poised and revealed, always re-centering on some in-between space and embracing a warmth of details to call their own. 

Untitled Pairs and Blue Parrots are exhibited alongside a selection of works by Saimaiyu Akesuk, curated by NAMARA for the Canada Goose Miami Pop-up.

Beijing 作 为一只 鸟 As a Bird

Taikoo Li Sanlitun, Beijing. Two figures, two artists, Saimaiyu Akesuk’s Rippling Birds and Sparkling Bird are here intersected by Alex Fischer.

Saimaiyu’s confident drawings with bold and dynamic simplicity are rendered with soft tenderness and often a touch of whimsy. Alex’s fashioning of Saimaiyu’s characters into models here amplifies their presence.

A presence of standing being sensitive to the waves and stars. A proud character.
