Yumi Kono - Mountain Sheep Running

September 14 – October 12, 2006

Legacy Maltwood (at Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

Curated by Dr. Astri Wright

This exhibition featured drawings created by Yumie Kono. Her drawings use repeating cross lines with hard pencils, which yields very soft and subtle drawings.

My drawings create dream-like landscapes using repeating cross lines with hard pencils (H-10H). This slow process results in a very subtle and soft drawing… My paintings focus on the subtleness of colour balance with a layering technique of oil paint on linen canvas… I am searching for “Genfukei”- That is: an ocurence when our inner landscape and your outer landscape are recognized as one and the same.
