Yoshi - JCAT

Description

BIOGRAPHY

  • ​Born in Okayama Prefecture

    Unable to hold an interest in straight photography, Yoshi operates at a distance from convention, finding pleasure instead in the creation of photographic works of art impossible to see through just a passing glimpse.
    Yoshi began studying photography after visiting Gallery DOT, a photo exhibition space in Kyoto. He couldn’t see the merits of portrait or landscape photography, genres he saw as aiming simply for beauty, or a freeze-frame of reality, but his opinion and understanding of the medium changed completely upon discovering photographs processed using multiple exposures. Encountering this fascinating technique led to his current stylized method of photographic expression.
    Melding ubiquitous subjects like plants, animals, water, and light with representations of the human form, Yoshi creates composite works of art. His photographs are thus born from a space unbeholden to time or place.
    Whether using the textures of plants to show the interior of a soul, or using the human image to express the situation of a plant, Yoshi is constantly peering through his lens, gathering and combining images into works of art that surpass the trauma of his memories.

  • 岡山県生まれ
    ストレート写真に面白さを感じることができず、本来の写真から距離を置いた、一見写真に見えない様なアート作品制作に楽しみを見出す。
    京都の写真ギャラリーDOTにて写真に出会い、写真を学ぶ。
    単に綺麗なポートレイト、ストレートな風景写真等、現実を捉えた写真表現の面白さが理解できずにいたが、ある時、多重露光を使った作品に出会い衝撃を受ける。それをきっかけに現在の写真表現手法による作品作りが始まる。
    どこにでも存在する動植物、水そして光を使い、それぞれを人と融合させ一つの作品を生み出す。彼のシャッターチャンスは時と場所に関係無く存在している。
    人の内面を草木等で表現するのか、または草木等の表情を人で表現するのか・・過去に自分が受けた衝撃以上の作品を、自分自身で作り出すため、彼は今日もどこかでレンズを覗いている。
