From the Flomenhaft Gallery website :

The Flomenhaft Gallery in Chelsea, New York, is proud and honored to announce Roger Shimomura’s exhibition, Great American Muse , on view May 8-June 28, 2014.

The show consists of 30 new paintings. 

Shimomura wrote about this exhibit, “Central to my work is the manipulation of common objects into something other than what they seem.  Recently, I became reacquainted with Great American Nude, a series of paintings by Tom Wesselmann.  The interplay between the female figure, still life objects, and a familiar piece of contemporary art fascinated me as it set up multiple interpretations.  By starting with Wesselmann’s premise of juxtaposing three separate motifs and by adding race and culture to the mix, the level of interpretation rose exponentially, each component adding its own history and viewpoint, resulting in endless potential for dialogue and debate.”
