Darius Airo: Mickey’s Mirror at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery

by | Jul 2, 2024 | Blog post

Abigail Ogilvy Gallery x WhiteBox.LA present Mickey’s Mirror, a solo exhibition of recent paintings and pastels by Darius Airo. Airo’s latest works are vibrant abstractions featuring monolithic cartoon characters depicted on tables and abstracted through internal mirrors. Airo utilizes rhythms and content as compositional tools, creating an autobiographical alphabet rearranged according to mood or space.

The images explore the collapse and explosion of elements such as the monolith, mirror, and table, with the characters serving as symbolic and self-referential figures that shift formally within their environments, reflecting mood and space.

The exhibition, curated by photographer / founder of WhiteBox.LA Joshua White is ongoing through July 6th, 2024 at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery | Los Angeles.
