‘Familiar Strangers’ – New Work from Yoskay Yamamoto

LeBasse Projects is proud to announce Familiar Strangers, a solo exhibition from Japanese artist Yoskay Yamamoto. This will be the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, and will mark his most diverse body of work to date…
The show represents a breakthrough in work from Yamamoto containing both painting and sculptural work.  The show will reflect a continuation of intimate statements of self-expression that began in his last series of exhibitions.

Yamamoto’s previous exhibition focused on the artists’ external struggles and experiences while Familiar Strangers is inspired by a detachment from one’s inner self and the rediscovery of ones true nature.  Yamamoto states: ‘I feel that I am always trying to fit in with others instead of finding or creating an environment that will naturally accept me as who I am. With the attempt and effort to fit in, I feel that we lose a sense of ourselves and become a familiar stranger within our own body.’
