In NEW WAVES, Takashi Homma presents a series of photographs of the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii spanning thirteen years. The photographs of waves depict the coastline continuously unchanged by climate or seasonal time. By reproducing and revisiting the same landscape repeatedly, Homma captures focused reflections of the interaction between pictorial and mental space, the waves and our selves.

NEW WAVES presents a series of work rooted in psychological phenomena, pictorial meditation, and temporal space. Homma’s NEW WAVES, are presented as a trichotomy: land/sea/sky. This triad is the paramount relationship in the seascapes, which confront the viewer by embodying variant portraits of the self. Accompanying the exhibition, Takashi Homma presents a catalogue entitled NEW WAVES 2000–2013.

Takashi Homma (Japanese, b. 1962) lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. Homma received the 24th Kimura Ihei Commemorative Photography Award for the photo book Tokyo Suburbia.

About Longhouse Projects
Longhouse Projects is a contemporary art gallery that began in 2012 and opened in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan in the spring of 2013.

Our objective is to provide a new context for established and emerging artists to exhibit their work in a cross-cultural setting. We hope to bridge often overlooked gaps between diverse cultures and generations by creating an open and interdisciplinary forum for contemporary artistic and cultural dialogue. The gallery hopes to showcase the intimate connection between art and its audience and engage in a greater discussion about contemporary art today.
