‘Picking Up Where We Left Off’ by Yoskay Yamamoto – Opening Night

Yoskay Yamamoto’s new body of artwork “Picking Up Where We Left Off” does just that. Picking up from his 2010 LeBasse exhibition (seen here) and inspired by a reconnection with family, Yamamoto’s new paintings explore pure expression free from any singular theme, allowing Yamamoto to sincerely develop as an artist. Works such as “Midnight Blossom” articulate an intensified sense of natural Japanese aesthetic mixed with the urban pop-culture experienced in Los Angeles life. Around the corner, one finds a beautiful, ornate display of Yamamoto’s hand-carved butternut sculptures and antlered busts. Botanical motifs and mythological creatures, such as dragons and lotus-adorned figures, arise from colorful paint washes throughout the show. “Picking Up Where We Left Off” by Yoskay Yamamoto exhibits at LeBasse Projects, Culver City, CA, from September 10 – October 1, 2011. - Caro
