YUMIKO KAYUKAWA: JAPANESE WOLF. Zero+ Publishing, Claremont, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Gingko Press Inc., Berkeley. 144 pp. with 92 col. ills. and 86 col. reference ills. 29 x 29 cm. ISBN 9781937222222 Bilingual in English and Japanese.
Publisher's description: This monograph presents new work by prolific artist Yumiko Kayukawa, hailing from the small town of Naie in Hokkaido, Japan. The love of nature instilled in her from a young age is combined with contemporary influences such as manga, kawaii, and American pop culture films, music, and fashion. The pieces in Japanese Wolf are culled from her work of the last six years, after a move to Seattle in 2005. These large scale paintings are fantastical in subject matter and always include a human woman and surrounding animals. Imagery of blue sequined mermaids, hyenas, alligators, lotus blossoms, geishas, peacocks, and veiled dragons parade into the foreground or recede into the background. Panes of flat color and criss crossing patterns form dynamic movement across each piece, an open invitation for us to enter Yumiko's complex and expressionistic world.
