PK SHOP of Paul Kasmin Gallery has opened a solo exhibition titled Carrie Yamaoka: Are You Experienced?. The artist, Carrie Yamaoka, uses mixed mediums to create explorative pieces. With multiple exposures of drawings and various textures, Carrie Yamaoka creates different densities of imprint.
Yamaoka embraces errors and defects; by allowing mistakes to be a part of her work, the art welcome the viewers to look deeper in order to gain an understanding of process. According to Yamaoka, “rubbing is a method of recording that precedes photography, and much of [her] practice has been informed by embracing or resisting photographic ideas and principles.”
With her complex ideals, Yamaoka’s skills and efforts transform the complexity of her experience into a minimalistic form. Carrie Yamaoka: Are You Experienced? at Paul Kasmin Gallery is located in Chelsea, NYC and the exhibition is open until April 12, 2014.
