On September 8th, LeBasse Projects will debut ‘Hakuryuu – White Dragon’, new works by Yumiko Kayukawa. This anticipated exhibition is Kayukawa’s first solo exhibition with the gallery after appearing in several group exhibitions.
In reaction to the devastating earthquake that hit Japan in 2011, Yumiko Kayukawa explores personal coping mechanisms in the aftermath of an unforgettably painful event. Like many others, Kayukawa finds herself feeling helpless and still grieving for her native country. The show title, ‘Hakuryuu – White Dragon’ symbolizes an omen of good fortune. It is through the new paintings that the artist pushes themes of optimism and good fortune, hoping it will help send a positive message in the aftermath of such tragedy.
