Something will appear
at the edge of this square.
Enjoy the gradual revelation of one of artist Kumi Yamashita’s works, called Fragments.
"Fragments" consists of
40 colored resin tiles.
When Ms. Yamashita was in New Mexico
in 2008, she met many people.
They were of different
backgrounds and ethnicities.
With her art, Ms. Yamashita
created a testament and
celebration of their lives.
"I sculpt shadow with light or sometimes light with shadow, but both function in essentially the same manner. I take objects and carve and place them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow)."
I altered the earlier images so all you saw was the panels. Here they are, uncropped. Each panel depicts the silhouette of a real person.
Fragments is in the permanent collection of the
New Mexico History Museum, Santa Fe, USA.
