Kumi Yamashita

I stumbled across Yamashita's work today, and was simply spellbound by her mastery of the manipulation of light and shadows. I have personally seen very few artist who manipulate light to create alluring shadows, none of whom have created such crisp and unique shadows as these.



Yamashita's further exploration of contorting light has led her to create moving shadows, such as in her piece Dialogue...



Light and shadows are not however, the only medium that Yamashita works with. Her broad spectrum of media, also includes most interestingly the use of brads (which is what they're called, although I think its just a fancy way of saying pins) and thread on board. An example of such is here, I think the effects is spectacular, especially with consideration to how it was created.
