Yoskay Yamamoto at LeBasse Projects


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.
