|FOIL GALLERY is pleased to
announce Levi Pata's solo exhibition,"Continuous Gunfire and Greek
Music" from February 25, to March 12, 2011.
As an American artist, Levi Pata was born and raised in California,
in a family of mainly Native American origin. He has been living
in Tokyo now for two years. The title, "Continuous Gunfire and
Greek Music" came from a scene from the movie, The Godfather,
when the subtitles were describing a scene for the deaf, where
there was gunfire going on as well as music. As human beings,
we can produce both gunfire and music, but are both loud and opposite
sounds. These sounds can symbolize everyday life, especially in
a city such as Tokyo, and bring to surface the silence underneath
all of us. Living in Tokyo, brought this silence to Levi's awareness
and made for a connection between all his works.
The things in these two worlds bring contradictions. In this present
era of despair and struggle for evolution, Levi brings us a world
of both, seamlessly fused together, to represent one single place
for our dreams to head toward. A world that aims toward the inner
part of each of us, and wants to include all in the journey toward
in Holister, U.S.A. Currently Lives and Works in Tokyo.
Graduated from Fine Arts, City College of San Francisco in 2004.
