“Deep Fields”

September 18, 2015

I’m having a show with my best friend, Rob Sato!

He was my boyfriend but then we got married.

Here’s the press release for our show, Deep Fields

Giant Robot presents: Deep Fields, a two person show featuring Ako Castuera and Rob Sato

September 19 – October 14th, 2015

Reception 6:30-10pm Saturday September 19th, 2015

GR2 2062 Sawtelle Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90025 4242-GO-ROBO

Ako was 17 and Rob was 19 when they met at CCA(C) in 1996. After a few years of friendship, they confessed their hidden love for one another and they’ve been together ever since. For nearly two decades, Rob and Ako have built their lives around each other and their art. They share friends, family, creative influences, economic conditions and moments of joy and tragedy which shape their individual, but shared experience. Although they have exhibited in numerous group shows together, Deep Fields represents the first time these partner/artists have had their own split show. Rather than attempt to unify the work in terms of theme or concept, Deep Fields offers a cross section of current work from each respective artist, as well as collaborations that will afford an open ended view of the resonant effect of two artists being shaped and shaping each other over time.
