Yoko Kubrick – Woodside, CA
Yoko Kubrick was born to Czech and Japanese parents living on the Island of Guam. Her work is influenced by the landscapes of her childhood in Guam and Hawaii. She spent much of her time there observing the flow and movement of water, the forms and curves of black lava, and tropical plant formations. From an early age, Yoko noticed that there was an emotional quality to shapes, a phenomenology. Each form revealing its own psychology, their aesthetic conveying feelings, a language which she calls “the emotive language of form.” She finds her interests in environment and psychology intersect through her sculpture, which explores the psychology of aesthetic perception related to forms found in nature.
