Hiro Yokose

Hiro Yokose‘s paintings depict images of nature. The sensuous works are composed using a subtle palette. Playing with the viewer’s perceptions, his work creates a visual experience of recognition and mystery.

Yokose’s unusual technique involves layering oil paint and beeswax on the canvas surface, creating a dream-shrouded vista. There is the sense of the infinite to the luminous works. He often paints a low horizon line in his works, illuminating the rest of the canvas with Turneresque skies and natural scenes. In this way, his work hovers between a Zen-like minimalist abstraction and a traditional landscape.

Yokose was born in Nagasaki, Japan in 1951. After living and working in Manhattan for several decades, he recently returned to Japan.
