Hiro Yokose

Hiro Yokose was born in Nagasaki, Japan in 1951 and moved to Manhattan as a young man, where he lived and worked for the majority of his career. His sensual paintings depict images of nature composed using a subtle palette.  Playing with the viewer’s perceptions, Yokose’s work creates a visual experience of recognition and mystery. Yokose’s unusual technique involves layering oil paint and beeswax on the canvas surface, creating a dream-shrouded vista.  In this way, his work hovers between a Zen-like minimalist abstraction and a traditional landscape.
