As if by magic, artist Kumi Yamashita skillfully manipulates shadows through minimalist sculptures that only unveil their true beauty through strategic lighting. Alphabet blocks on a wall are arranged to cast shadows in the form of a child’s face, or a woman’s silhouette. Simple pieces of colored paper squares are gently wrinkled to cast profiles of human faces onto the wall.
The New York-based artist’s jaw-dropping conceptual art is a prime example of what one can accomplish with refinement of craft.
