Yui Kugimiya, Prosing Drama, 2016, Oil on linen, 36 x 28 in / 91.4 x 71.1 cm
An exhibition of a series of new paintings by Brooklyn-based Japanese artist Yui Kugimiya, is on view at Taymour Grahne Gallery from January 18 to February 22, 2017.
In the exhibition titled “Robot Open Sesame,” the artist explores the delicate tension between positive and negative space. Soft blobs of pastel color float in a hazy sea of white. These shapes have presence and weight, yet they disorientate the eye, for they appear only half there, intransient beings with one foot in another world.
