Hiroshi Sato, 2020

Marrow Gallery presents "August 2020", an exhibition of new works from San Francisco based painter Hiroshi Sato. Sato explores the sudden shift in San Francisco during the pandemic. He explores how the city has grown quiet, while the anxiety of the moment creates an internal noise that cannot be suppressed. Continuing his use of solitary figures, Sato captures the shift from a bustling metropolis to a quiet dissonance as the city clears and invites introspection.

Greatly influenced by Edward Hopper, Sato too uses solitary figures in barren environments. In a recent Guardian article, Jonathan Jones notes that these lonely images are so perfectly representative of this fraught time.

Hiroshi Sato was born in Japan and spent his childhood in Tanzania. The colors of Africa are hugely influential in his work. He came to the US to study at the Atlanta College of Art. He has a BFA and an MFA from the Academy of Art in San Francisco and has shown extensively across the US. In January 2020, Sato was the Artist in Residence at the Cheekwood Center in Nashville, TN.
