In the Space of the Near and Distant: Solo Exhibition by Jonathan Yukio Clark

Miyako Yoshinaga
24 East 64th Street,
New York, USA
Mar 17, 2022 To Apr 30, 2022


Detail: This solo exhibition by a Hawaiʻi-based Japanese-American artist will consist of monotype prints and sculptures informed by the traditional Japanese living space, where the transience of nature and human life are closely connected through, for example, a garden which "borrows" the scenery of the outside landscape. For Clark, the concept of borrowed scenery or shakkei/" means not only the visual borrowing of expansive vistas framed through such gardens or architectural features, but also the spiritual incorporation of impermanence into the stability of built or inhabited spaces. With this philosophy in mind, Clark traces and captures the imprints of his heritage, such as his family history across Hawaiʻi and Japan, panoramic views of volcanic mountainscapes from both regions, and the 1950s Oʻahu home of his Japanese grandparents. Through his personal lens, Clark skillfully embeds these elements into his recent work, while using various natural materials that speak to a close affinity for each environment.
