Featured among 15 other artists in Paradox Shifts, C.A.V.E. Gallery's current group show, is Taka Sudo's explosive new multimedium collection. Sudo created 13 new pieces for this exhibition, testing a few at a show in Tokyo late last year.

Born in Japan and residing in Vancouver since 2001, Sudo is inspired by energy, nature, urban life and creative people. Self-taught, he uses a variety of mediums in his newest series, including collage with newspapers and inkjet photographs, acrylic paint, drawing with various inks and spray paint. Fragments of human and animal faces dominate the canvases, while newspaper text and bits of letters erupt around the visages, surrounded by bursts of bright color. “Sometimes chaos makes neutrality,” says Sudo.
