Yuriko Yamaguchi: Interconnected in Art, Nature, Science and Technology


Immerse yourself in the work of Yuriko Yamaguchi this winter at the Figge Art Mseum. A native of Japan and longtime resident of Washington D.C., Yamaguchi creates organic, web-like sculptures from nets of wire and resin forms cast from dried curls of potatoes, onion ends, leaves and seed pods found in nature. Through her art, she seeks to explore the constantly fluctuating but ever-present “interconnections” that bind us to one another and to the natural world.

Yamaguchi currently teaches sculpture at George Washington University. She has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally, including the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Field Museum in Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Ise Contemporary Art Museum in Japan and many others. Her artwork also is included in major museum collections both in the U.S. and abroad.

Interconnected will be on view January 24-May 31, 2015
Exhibition catalogue available in the Museum Store.
