Continuing her direct approach to materials and space, Miyuki Yokomizo’s recent paintings consist of an accumulation of vertical and horizontal lines. She applies paint to a thread that is tightly stretched across the canvas, then flicks the thread with her fingers, leaving a mark and creating a grid pattern. The traces of her acts are engraved on the canvas with splashes, drips, blurs, scratches, and layers of colours, embracing the randomness which is beyond the artist’s control or intention. This first comprehensive overview of her work includes 45 works that reflect the evolution of Yokomizo’s techniques and expressions, from early installations and sculptures to her thread paintings.
