Texture of Life by Yukako Sakakura

4th October - 12th November 2010, London

The Reading Room Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Japanese artist Yukako Sakakura. This exhibition will be Yukako Sakakura's first solo exhibition in London.


Yukako Sakakura graduated from the Glasgow School of Art painting and printmaking department in 2008.


Since then, she has exhibited internationally in Japan, Scotland, England, France and Germany, and has collaborated in cross-cultural projects.


Her current practice involves the use of figurative and abstract form in empty white backgrounds, emphasizing our own centralized identity, and an exploration of the nature of reality. Her obsessive drawing of the same figure describes the desire to capture the presence of inner thought, and the simultaneous confusion in comprehending our individuality.


Yukako Sakakura was recently featured as one of the emerging fine artists in the UK from Japan in The Glasgow Herald Newspaper.
