Sculpture, Installation, Painting, Drawing

"24 Hour" uses coin wrappers to present two views exploring the relationship between nature and distinct cultural materials. "24 Hour" further develops Yu-Whuan's study of the distinct uses and contexts of the otherwise generic material of paper, as previously explored in her 2001 work "heavy Air," using napkins burned in a "spontaneous expression of [her] relationship with New York City" in a manner that "could only have been created here.” 

Yu-Whuan's work, while bold and direct, includes mystery and a philosophical aspect, in that it packs its philosophical punch in the same way that John Cage spoke of art that “is not about ideas but produces them.”  Her process plays with the attention that goes beyond the frame of observer/observed, in which moments of meeting open up new languages of perspective. In her early studies with Shimamoto Shozo, Yu-Whuan found herself freed to explore an open spirit of making art, when, instead of drawing on a canvas, Shozo proceeded to draw on his own head.

Yu-Whuan studied with the painters, Mr. Shen Zhe Zai and Mr. Zeng Pei Yao, sculptor Yamamoto Kakuzi. She graduated from Kyoto University of Education, majoring in Art, where she studied sculpture with Yamazaki Masayoshi, Kishiro Yoshiji; studied painting with A Be sensei, and Shimamoto Shozo, one of the pioneers of the Gutai group. After she received BFA, independent studied in contemporary sculpture in the same University.  She received a “MURASAKI” award for the 47th Kyoto Exposition. She is a member of the Kyoto Sculptor Association. Her work experience includes graphic design. She has had major public and select private exhibitions, including at the New York Historical Society and Teller Boricua Gallery. Invited Gaun Sculpture group as special quest solo exhibit in Kyoto Art Museum; 2 Solo Show at Ando Tadao Architecture Ayabei City Culture Center, and other museums and Galleries. Outdoor exhibitions including The Global Worming Prevention in Kyoto Convention celebration. She was the director of PhilosophyBox Gallery.

"Art is life," Yu-Whuan said, "Having an own philosophy is significant for work, often I attain the "time" with "Now", and put it into my work."

"Her works, full of dynamic and drastic ideas, include message and love for society, and has brought lots of smiles and courage to all people who have appreciated her works. While she was living in Japan, newspaper reported her and loved by people because of her new ideas and viewpoint filled with philanthropy."--HaneUsagi Gallery
