Gallery OUT of PLACE TOKIO is pleased to present the solo-exhibition of Hogalee's work titled, "Carpe diem." 

The title phrase, "Carpe diem," can be translated from Latin as "seize the day." It has also been used as an expression of pleasure-seeking in view of death/life, and by contrast, as what we call a "momento mori" or death knell. 
Following his solo-exhibition in 2013 titled, "plagiarism," Hogalee has taken up issues surrounding originals and copies, tracing, as well as homage and parody, as subjects for his paintings and murals. 
For this exhibition, rather than artists and art movements subject to plagiarism, he frames structures and formations of contemporary art put in place by our forerunners to position the "Tokyo girl" largely considered an icon of today's society. Here we present Hogalee's works rendered by his trademark thickness of line, and this time, as monochromatic images.  
A view of life/death -- in placing a title of "Carpe diem," we invite you to witness the desire in these newest works to take a leap past our forerunners.
