Loud, quiet, radiant, serene. 'Devan Shimoyama: All the Rage' is Back in Stock for Pride Month!

"Dizzy Spell" (2019–2021) is reproduced from Devan Shimoyama: All the Rage, the first major monograph on the rising Pittsburgh-based artist and a staff favorite for LGBTQ+ Pride. Rhinestones, sequins and costume jewelry marry with day-glo pigments and magazine clippings in paintings that are as absolutely contemporary, Black and queer as they are psychedelic, celebratory and baroque. "The motif of Aquarius runs through Shimoyama's oeuvre, with all its interesting interweaving of cultures," Amely Deiss writes. "The 'Age of Aquarius' has long since ceased to be something that is longed for and invoked in wider circles—even if the idea of a society characterized by tolerance, freedom, equality and a willingness to share remains just as desirable today as it was in the 1970s and 1980s. In Shimoyama's images, however, this idea is suddenly realized. He makes it come true, this utopia: it is loud, quiet, radiant, serene. A foretaste of an ideal coexistence in a future 'now.' Heavenly bodies in neon pink."
