Keisuke Yamamoto | Light • Time • Silence

Osaka-born artist Keisuke Yamamoto creates hand-drawn stone lithographs which reconstruct several recurring components in ever-fascinating ways. He received his MFA from Kanazawa College of Art and Design in 1986 and for the past twenty-five years has been making a study of his chairs and light.

Yamamoto's lithographs play with our expectation of narrative. Rather than offering didactic context his images drop us directly into a moment in which we are only visitors. The lithographs are of incredible stillness that arrests the viewer with their composition. They bring our busy lives to halt and insist that we stop, look, and be present in the moment while imagining ourselves standing in the room or out in the garden.

This artist's work is an unusual and rare mix of masterful technique, philosophical curiosity, and emotional gravity.

Exhibition | March 1st through the 31st.
