Artist Profile

Born: 1983

Hometown: Fukuoka

Based in: Tokyo

Born in 1983 in Fukoka, Japan, Yuto Yamasaki's works take the concept of everyday life as its frame of reference. His sculptures are created not from grandiose and complex concepts, but rather come from the common and essential human desire to improve the quality of everyday life. Using wood for its accessibility and conventionality, he makes his works in the routine, daily manner of an office worker, immersed in the repetitive, mundane details of process. Through art-making, he seeks the moment when an object crosses the boundary between the ordinary and art.

"I have come to see art as something that decorates mundane life, and thus I have adopted foliage plants as my motif. Grown as decorations for ordinary life, and thus occupying a space similar to art, unlike art, foliage plants are commonly available and considered a part of the substance of the everyday.

The routine nature of physical art-making is also of great importance to me. The daily practice of creating work by hand primes me to perceive where art and the everyday overlap. By fully immersing myself in the production my sculptures on a daily basis, like a skilled craft-worker, my mind enters a meditative state. This mental state allows me to unconsciously reflect something of my personal character in my work. Furthermore, this meditative approach to art-making produces work in great quantity and variety. This volume of work allows me to explore the diversity and rich vitality of foliage plants, and by extension, the complexity and vibrance of the everyday."
