Junko Yamamoto Surface of Life
YUKIKO KOIDE PRESENTS
Junko Yamamoto (born 1973) exhibits brilliantly simplified shapes, bold usage of colors, dynamic two-dimensional composition, and tactual form achieved from subtle work by hand. She is a self-taught felt applique artist. Her work began spontaneously--she picked up some pieces of felt and created a breath-taking felt applique. Her themes include kitchen apparatus, food and familiar objects from daily life. Once inspired, Junko Yamamoto cuts and sews felt fabrics relentlessly to recreate artifacts and images from art books and magazines. She uses felt applique to "speak" to us about her vibrant and tactual world of colorful felts.
