We are pleased to present the opening of painting exhibition “To Walk, To See, To Breathe” by Yukari Kaihori. This exhibition is Yukari’s second solo show in Wellington, following a successful one-person exhibition last year.

“To Walk, To See, To Breathe” presents 20 paintings completed in the past year, which include an extensive abstract landscape series, all rendered in Yukari’s signature dots shapes and water-colour-like contemporary use of oil paint. Yukari’s use of diluted oil paints moved around on the surface of the panel, show both accident and control of the pigment, and appears throughout the series of works. This stunning finish supports the philosophy she wishes to convey.

Using oil paint like watercolour, she tells visual stories, often reconstructing sceneries she encounters in the forests and mountains. The captured sceneries go through metamorphosis: the environment we live in is fragile and ephemeral in nature. Her approach to image-making negotiates a balance between the time and physicality of the worlds.

Yukari is originally from Japan. She studied Studio Art at high school as well as at the University of Oregon. She interned in New York under artist Sigrid Burton before returning to Japan for several years. She went onto University of the Arts, London to expand the knowledge in mix painting media as well as ceramics. In recent years, she has chosen Wellington to be the base for her studio as the city's surrounding nature attract and inspire her deeply.
