A mistake is a beautiful thing

A mistake is a beautiful thing - Devin Troy Strother and Yuri Ogita

The loosely organized collection of images – taken both by and of Devin and Yuri – offers an offhand perspective into the duo’s daily life as artists and publishers. Accompanied by short and often humorous captions, the photographs (sometimes overlapping) are comprised of glimpses into studio life – collages in progress, unhung paintings, spilled paint – as well as other encountered objects – book covers, plants, and many dime bags. The work moves indiscriminately through its recurring motifs to build on a dialog that is irreverent but assured, examining art and its references, cultural phenomena and the experience of being a person of color in the US.
