Interconnected
Yuriko YAMAGUCHI   
in Art, Nature, Science and Technology
February 18 - Mar 26, 2016

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 18, 2016, 6-8 p.m.

Howard Scott Gallery is pleased to present Yuriko Yamaguchi’s third solo exhibition entitled Interconnected in Art, Nature, Science and Technology. This exhibition is a revised version of her 2015 show at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa. Several works have been added for this exhibition. Some works in this exhibition will be featured in Yamaguchi’s exhibition at the Asia Society Texas Center in Houston April 23rd through August 2016.

Yuriko Yamaguchi weaves delicate strands of wire and jewel-like pieces of resin into abstract sculptures that inspire a wide range of associations but resist definitive interpretations. Ranging from sprawling forms to compact, flattened circles, the sculptures recall natural phenomena like tornadoes. Cellular structures like neurons and abstract representations of digital networks. The diversity of these references reflect Yamaguchi’s intuitive approach to artistic process. For Yamaguchi a work of art is the product of an organic, constantly-evolving process that does not follow a preconceived plan and instead relies on chance and discovery.

Yamaguchi was born in Japan, immigrated to the United States with her family in 1971 and attended university where she was exposed to the philosophies and practices of art movement’s popular during that time. She earned an undergraduate degree at the University of California at Berkeley and did an Independent study with Lucio Pozzi at Princeton University. Yamaguchi received a Master of Fine Art under the direction of Anne Truitt, a minimalist sculptor and painter. During her graduate studies in Maryland, Yuriko began to experiment with sculpture. Reluctant to work with unyielding material like stone and metal, she responded to the work of Eva Hesse, who celebrated the process of creating a work of art.
