Giant Robot is proud to present Junk History, a solo show featuring new works by Rob Sato, February 13 - March 9, 2010.

Los Angeles-based artist Rob Sato produces rich, detailed imagery, mixing scenes of stark horror, quiet beauty, and humor. His heavily yet subtly narrative paintings tend to walk in a tense space between the observed and imagined world, and the massive amount of back story evident in every image rewards long, hard looks.

"Junk History will feature both the largest and the smallest paintings I've ever worked on. I'm working furiously to finish a few huge pieces by show time, there will be some prints of past favorites, and I've kept making a bunch of these tiny paintings that somewhat ape the look of slide film," says Sato. "What comes out is an unexpected mass of paper machines which seem to work pretty well despite being a bit clunky and bound together with spit and string. Some of them crash pretty hard, but those only get shown if they crash hilariously."
