ko kirk yamahira

These paintings are the work of Seattle based artist Ko Kirk Yamahira. ‘Paintings’, you ask? Well, yes, that’s how they start out:

“… the finished painting is a beginning rather than an end. Painstakingly removing individual threads from the weave of the canvas, Yamahira deconstructs his paintings, turning surface into form.”

What? Yep! If you happen to be in Seattle, you can see his work as part of a two-person show {with Emily Counts} at Studio e until September 12th, 2020. Threads. WHAT.
