Kumi Yamashita: "Constellation"

February 25, 2014

Working with just a wood panel, brad nails and a single sewing thread Kumi Yamashita has created beautiful multi-dimensional portraits. In "Constellation" as well as Kumi's other projects, she continues to push the boundaries of traditional materials. These threaded illustrations are created by careful observation of light and shadow and the use of wrapped thread in varying concentrations. Kumi was born in Japan and currently lives in New York.
