FOLDED LIGHT, FOLDED SHADOW: Paper Reliefs by Yuko Nishimura
May 3, 2008 – July 27, 2008
Using her skilled fingers as her tools, emerging Japanese artist Nishimura Yuko transforms large, crisp single white sheets of a special handmade paper known as kyukushi into complex geometric wall reliefs. The freedom with which Yuko Nishimura creates a folded straight or curved line, and subsequently hundreds of them to complete an image, with no template other than her conceptual vision of the work, reveals the poet and the musician that inhabits her. This exhibition, curated by William T. Thrasher, will be her first solo Museum exhibition in the United States.
