Chair

is part of Kumi Yamashita’s Light & Shadows series where she creates shadow objects using a single light source. Her art functions as the visible reminder of invisible art. From simple beginnings, she invites us to reassess the unpredictable relationship between what we expect to see and our actual perception.

The New-York based artist received her Master of Fine Arts degree from Glasglow School of Art. Her solo shows include: the Seattle Art Museum, Boise Art Museum, Yerba Buena Centre, San Francisco, the Esplanade in Singapore, Hillside Gallery in Tokyo and the Kent Gallery in New York. She is scheduled for a solo exhibition at the Sato Museum, Tokyo and the Dillon Gallery, New York for 2012. Her work is in the collection of the New Mexico History Museum, Seattle City Light, Microsoft Collection, Boise Art Museum, the Hamada Art Museum and others.

We featured the Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita a few years ago here and here.
