Gregory Ito - Moonstruck

December 15th - January 19th 2013


Moonstruck is an exhibition that deconstructs Ito's impassioned relationship with the Moon, in hopes of connecting viewers with the constant looming presence of the lunar sphere that floats high above us.  By referencing domestic spaces, romantic companionship, and his personal history, Ito presents new works that highlight his engagement with the Moon through assembling images, objects, text, textures, and gesture. Ito raises awareness of the Moon's encompassing presence throughout human history, and acknowledge the void that exists between the general populous and the sky above us.  Ito aims to present works that encourages viewers to address their individual connection with the Moon and redefine it's significance in today's social and cultural climate.

He studied at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) receiving his BFA in 2008 and is a the co-founder/editor of SFAQ (San Francisco Arts Quarterly) and co-owner of Ever Gold Gallery, San Francisco.  Ito has shown his work internationally, and is currently on view at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) in New World, New Sequence till January 13th, 2013.
