Nami Yokoyama Exhibition
This event has ended.
The Nami Yokoyama was awarded the Toru Kuwakubo Prize at Petit Geisai #15 in 2011 and is featured as a young artist in the “Reaching for Realism” exhibition at the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art. Focusing on still lifes, Yokoyama does not conceal her respect for modern Japanese artists. The simple and everyday nature of the motifs in their works resonates deeply with her, and she too has turned her attention to the commonplace, choosing bean sprouts as a subject of her art. Although only a single sprout spreads across the canvases of many of her works, these paintings stir strong and lingering emotions, as if projecting the life experiences of the viewer. In addition to her beansprout paintings, which display her growing compositional skills, this exhibition presents works with new motifs. This assembly of old and new works demonstrates Yokoyama’s steady progress an artist taking an earnest look at daily life in Japan.
