Early in her carrier, she came into the limelight with her unique impromptu-like drawings. She was accepted at Gunma Biennale for Young Artists 2010 and participated in Aichi Triennale 2010 Exhibition.
The drawing technique of Yukari is quite simple. On the white screen, she draws line automatically with pen or carbon paper in various daily situations. For instance, she produces her works while chatting or reading. When she constructs the picture plane, she avert her gaze from the paper, entrust the direction of pen to involuntary action of her hand, and draws a line as if it travels side by side with passage of time. On the constructed picture planes, bold straight lines and gently undulating lines like a hill-crest are scattered. When we stand before her works, we feel no intension to control the direction of the viewer’s eyes in them. Instead, only the vacant sceneries are outspread before us.
In this exhibition, first solo-exhibition for her in Gallery Jin, 30 new drawings and 75 postcard-sized drawings are exhibited.
Concept of works:
I draw lines just as they occur from mannerisms of my hand. Then, I organize my work to the one picture plane with the construction resulted from the process of drawing.
By drawing lines extemporaneously without any intention, I remove lies or contrivances from my mind. I have play and purity as a result of this process float on the picture plane.
