We are presenting the “Yugo Kohrogi Drawings 2011-2015”.

Yugo Kohrogi’s drawings have a seductive presence. Referring to concrete, established forms with specific motifs and images, yet with textures that seem to peer through at things, aiming beyond the morals of sexual and psychological situations to the horizons of ontological shores. “Creation” for a fine artist is not dependent on technological or material innovation but based on innovations of perspective and philosophy. Often the more conservative the framework that would be defined by a subject or method, the more sophisticated the outcome of the expression might be.  Yoshimi Arts

“For me, painting is a way of interacting with the world. Redefining the perspectives of the world and society through an old-fashioned method like painting is my main object as an artist. I think that potential is still strong with painting, even in our time.”
[Excerpt from Yugo Kohrogi’s comment for Terrada Art Award]

We hope you will take this opportunity to view the works by Yugo Kohrogi.

Yoshimi Arts will also host this exhibition as a participant at “Festart Osaka 2015”.
