Yukako Shibata

In my work I explore the fugitive colours of the natural world and question the complex interplay of light, atmosphere and the human perceptual system. Finding the inner light in all things mundane inspires me, and it is these moments of reverie that are embodied in the work. Each work is a journey of discovery through play and observation, where the destination remains open. I deal with the microcosm in order to gain access to the universal that exists both within and around it, and explore the paradox between the functional and the meditative, archetypal forms of making. Creating is a form of meditation for me; I enjoy the slow evolution as the work comes into being.
