Yuko Sakurai: Works on wood paper and canvas

14 October - 11 November 2017

In the exhibition we are presenting earlier and recent works by Yuko Sakurai
on wood, paper and canvas.

The third exhibition by Yuko Sakurai in Galerie Friedrich Müller shows a combination of earlier works featuring oil on wood from 2005, 2008 and 2011, and her latest works, which were produced primarily in Japan. The various work series thus trace how Sakurai's work has evolved. One constant element in her work is the reference in each to a place or region where the artist once lived, or has visited during her many travels. After living for many years largely in Europe, just under two years ago Yuko Sakurai relocated to Tsuyama, where she spent her childhood and youth. Her most recent works unmistakably reflect this move back to her native Japan with its specific scenic impressions and special social atmosphere. (Excerpt from the press release by Peter Lodermeyer)
