We are pleased to inform you that MONO.LOGUES presents a solo exhibition of Yuma Yoshimura ‘’monologue’’. Yuma Yoshimura works using aluminum, wood, paint and other materials based on the elements of ‘’form and inscape’’. And he reflects the relation of himself with outer world on two-dimensional, semi-dimensional and installation works. In this exhibition, he presents new works developed through re-contemplation of project’s components such as materials and techniques, as his mind-set has widened by starting to operate MONO.LOGUES from last year. Please enjoy the exhibition ‘’monologue’’ which name comes from the name of its space MONO.LOGUES.
I draw innumerable lines on the substrate. I shave off and draw and again I shave off and draw. Then an atypical form emerges by this repeat. The traces spread in the form is our landscape made intentionally, which it can’t be reproduced. The flowing inscape gradually alters to an encountered form. There we exist inevitably.
