Exhibition: « Tori » by Masao YamamotoPress Release - Yancey Richardson is pleased to present Tori, the gallery’s sixth exhibition by Japanese artist Masao Yamamoto. The works included in Tori, the Japanese word for “bird”, span the breadth of Yamamoto’s career, from 1994 to the present and include both hand-printed photographs and hanging scrolls. Intimately scaled and masterfully printed, Yamamoto’s toned photographs bear evidence of the artist’s hand where he has torn the paper, applied flecks of gold paint, or dashes of red and blue ink. Yamamoto’s newest works include Kakejiku, a traditional Japanese hanging scroll. Printed on handmade Washi paper, the photographs have been mounted onto a scroll using classical techniques and materials such as kimono silk, handmade papers and wheat starch paste.
Yamamoto Masao Shizuka=Cleanse
Like a Zen master, Japanese photographer Yamamoto Masao approaches his work with an “active passiveness”. He is active in his observations of Nature, but passive in his understanding that he is an inextricable part of Nature itself. In his statement, he quotes the Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu, “A great presence is hard to see. A great sound is hard to hear. A great figure has no form.” Yamamoto seeks the presence of something indefinable that exists beyond the details we are able to see. Living in the forest, he photographically “harvests” what he calls “treasures breathing quietly in nature.” He refers to the presence of these treasures or moments as “Shizuka”, which means cleansed, pure, clear and untainted.
