"Indwelling" is a solo exhibition of Yuri Kobayashi, a contemporary artist who combines traditional woodworking practices and refined Japanese aesthetics to create sculptures that reflect her identity, experiences and thoughts.
In the five artworks in "Indwelling," Kobayashi strives to embody the surprise and wonder found in the impalpable and often illogical world in which we live.
With multiple wooden components, handcrafted with close attention to detail, each work represents an attempt to decipher and represent, in abstract form, this perpetual desire to represent the ineffable.
The most recent installation was created while Kobayashi participated in ASU Art Museum’s Artist Residency.
This exhibit is supported by the Windgate Charitable Foundation as part of the Windgate Contemporary Craft Initiative at ASU Art Museum. Visit the museum website for directions and hours and information about bringing classes to tour exhibitions or meet with curators.
