Yumiko Kayukawa just opend a new solo show, Rock You In a Tatumi Room, at Shooting Gallery. We saw it at our 15th Anniversary Auction with Yumiko: people gravitate to the work. This particular show continues on what Yumiko does best, creating a dreamlike scenario with animals, girls, music, and traditional Japanese folk.

As Shooting Gallery writes, "An amalgamation of cultural references such as the animist aspects of Shinto and Japanese folklore, the tones and pallet of Ukiyo-e, the defined lines of Manga, and the topical content of Anime.This new collection of works will continue the artist’s affinity for fusing pop culture iconography such as western fashion and rock and roll with varying aspects of traditional Japanese culture."
