Artspace 1616 is please to announce the exhibition of new work by local artist, John Yoyogi Fortes. Fortes is best known for his large canvases filled with quirky yet humorous characters and often a dense layering of imagery and textual puns. This exhibition marks a return for Fortes with a Sacramento showing of this scale, his last being an exhibit at Skinner Howard Contemporary Art in 2008.
The title of this exhibition, Mind Field Oasis, refers to the artist navigating his internal conflict while making art, but like an oasis there emerges refuge; in Fortes’ case, reconciliation with his inner critic and painting process ultimately manifesting as art.
