Another great show at LeBasse Projects. Starting June 12th (that's tomorrow!), Yoskay Yamamoto opens his new solo show "Familiar Strangers" comes to our lucky town.
"The show represents a breakthrough in work from Yamamoto - featuring a diverse range of paintings, hand carved wood as well as cast metal and resin sculptures. The show will reflect a continuation of intimate statements of self-expression that began in his last series of exhibitions.
Yamamoto’s previous exhibition focused on the artists’ external struggles and experiences while Familiar Strangers is inspired by a detachment from one’s inner self and the rediscovery of ones true nature. Using some of his iconic characters, Yamamoto adds new depth including a thematic use of flowers in the work. Flowers have been chosen because according to Yamamoto. ‘…they carry the essence of growth, but also have such a fragile state.’ The cycle of growth, blossoming and decay echo the circular nature of his previous exhibitions."
The opening reception is June 12th from 7-10 PM, but you can get a sneak peak now here.
