Michael Reeder : DEADRINGER
December 1 - December 22, 2018

NEW YORK CITY - Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present DEADRINGER, a solo exhibition by Michael Reeder. DEADRINGER will be Reeder’s inaugural solo exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary, in which he will be exhibiting new works that explore themes of self-identity and ego.

Through the use of bold saturated color and graphic geometric patterns blended with figurative elements, Reeder’s work delves into the concept of self, and the innate human desire to be an authentic entity. Skulls and hands are prevalent in the artists work, calling attention to both internal and external physical elements that connect us all as humans. As we strive for uniqueness, we are bound together through our humanity, highlighting the fact that we are ultimately the same.

About the exhibition, Reeder states, “I wanted to focus on how similar we as humans are regardless of our external differences and how desperately we attempt to stand apart in society. We are all composed of distinct experiences, backgrounds, cultures, fashion styles, careers, etc., yet it is all individually mashed up into a dead ringer, almost carbon copied vessel - the human body. This concept is the underlying premise of DEADRINGER.”

Please join us Saturday, December 1 from 6pm - 8pm for the opening reception of DEADRINGER. The artist will be in attendance. As an added bonus, the first 100 attendees of the exhibition will receive a free print.

This exhibition will be on view through Saturday, December 22. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email us at nyc@hashimotocontemporary.com
