WARD YOSHIMOTO


Lives and works in New York

Born USA | 1960

Yoshimoto commingles American and Japanese traditions and craftsmanship in his deft assemblages of found objects. Referencing Dada, Surrealism, and Pop, as well as the turbulent social and political landscape of his youth, Yoshimoto’s wry constructions address an ongoing history of cultural displacement with equal parts iconoclastic brio and meditative, almost obsessive rigor. In this singular brand of contemporary suburban folk art, cocktail stirrers, crucifixes, clocks, and pool balls assume formations as whimsical as they are poignant—the detritus of the American Dream washed ashore, picked over, and reassembled in an attempt to piece together a sense of identity amid the constant flux of contemporary life

Born and raised in Los Angeles he attended CSU Dominguez Hills as a design and studio major, in 1985 received his BFA in photography from The Art Center College of Design, (California) and 1999 he received his MFA in sculpture from Brooklyn College.
