EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)”

VinGallery

6 Le Van Mien, Thao Dien, District 2, HCMC

Yohei Yama returns to Vin Gallery with his second solo project with the gallery, four years after “The Power of Semiosis” (2015). Yama derives his works from nature, spinning the waves of the cosmos and webbing together the rhythm of natural forces. His oeuvre is distinguishable by its repetition and layering of lines, colours, patterns and more often than not creating optical effects that swell and vibrate.

“Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)” envisions the universe and it’s life-cycles where the future becomes the present and the present becomes the past.
