Moe Yamauchi Exhibition: Approaching Graphics
Moe Yamauchi won the Grand Prize in the 20th 1 WALL Graphics Competition for “Approaching Graphics,” her oil paintings depicting faces she had made using 3D computer graphics. The artist was praised for the rich creative potential in her works.
Yamauchi’s faces, painted in oils on canvases or old plywood, remind one of artless computer graphics in their earliest period. In this exhibition, her works, with their faces casting inscrutable gazes, have been laid out in a unique pattern that suggests instability, creating a distinctive aura throughout the gallery. Both Yamauchi’s Grand Prize-winning works and new works will be on view.
