About the Work
Greg Ito has mentioned you in his story, the narrative of which is ongoing. His compositions concern our collective, fragmented memory and the keyholes nestled in transition. The picture plane is flat yet replete with depth. Hands figure prominently, like we can reach out and touch it. New Future is a hand-finished print based on Ito's image that was published in the 2020 Los Angeles Times. The print illustrates the disintegration of corrupt opacity catalyzed by the power of our smartphones, as numerous acts of state-sanctioned violence are recorded and distributed to the internet. The central vision — a broadcast from the future where abuse of power has fallen, people have risen, and the world has been imaginatively reshaped — contrasts sharply with the landscape, rendered in grayscale like the past. To underscore this symbol of hope, New Future is intended as a benefit edition with 100% of net proceeds being donated to Border Kindness and Color of Change.
Greg Ito has upcoming solo exhibitions at Anat Egbi Gallery (Los Angeles) and Blouin Division (Montreal). Past exhibitions include solo presentations at Division Gallery (Montreal), Andrew Rafacz Gallery (Chicago), Steve Turner (Los Angeles), and ArtCubed (Los Angeles) among many others. Two-person exhibitions include Smart Objects (Los Angeles) alongside Michael Stasis, Club Pro (Los Angeles) alongside Mario Ayala, S-A-D-E (Los Angeles) alongside Alex Ito, and Kokoro Studio (San Francisco) alongside Korkarit Arunanondchai. Group exhibitions have been held at The Pit (Los Angeles), Jeffrey Deitch (New York), Shulamit Nazarian (Los Angeles), MON CHERI (Brussels), and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco). Ito lives and works in Los Angeles.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
