LeBasse Projects presents:
‘Joke’s On Me’ New work from Yoskay Yamamoto
March 24th – April 21st, 2012 Artist reception: Saturday, March 24th, 7-10p
Los Angeles, CA – LeBasse Projects: Chinatown is proud to announce ‘Jokes On Me,’ a solo exhibition from Los Angeles based artist Yoskay Yamamoto.
In his new body of work, Yamamoto will feature a series of sculptures based on iconic childhood characters. Three years in the making, ‘Jokes On Me’ is a conceptual project that explores current social issues through humor. Like a classic Sunday comic strip Yamamoto’s sculptures are charming and nostalgic but upon further inspection the individual works contain a darker underlying message and social commentary. This will be the artist’s first exhibition focused entirely on sculpture - in a range of mediums from plaster, resin, vinyl, clay and wood.
