Kumi Yamashita is a Japanese born, New York based artist who is known most prominently for her innovative light and shadow sculptures. Many of her works see the artist sculpt using light and shadow – constructing single or multiple objects and placing them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow).
In this article each image is constructed from a single unbroken black thread wound through a dense array of galvanized nails mounted on a painted white board, meaning that the darker areas within the portrait are formed solely from the density of the string.
