Born in Japan, Yuko Nogami Taylor is a mixed media painter in demand regionally, nationally and internationally. Her inspirations come from modern western art and Japanese historical art images. Her unique style combines two heritages of the Southern United States and Japan on canvas, serving to create harmony between nature and humble people.
Many of her paintings are based on rare photos of African-Americans taken in the 1900s. She creates a connection between them and our inner selves, using her Japanese heritage to celebrate the strength, honors the humility, and share the beauty that is in all our lives.
After experiencing the South Eastern US art scene and experimenting with a large variety of colors and materials as a visual artist, she wants to revisit her original heritage and develop her voice to master it. Japanese mineral painting method is a complex technique. These materials all come from the mother earth, and Yuko has a profound appreciation for them. She realized it is not economical nor convenient. However, she feels that this meticulous process is meaningful, important, interesting, and serves to inspire within her the true essence of art. With this new exhibition, Sanctuary, she is venturing out to a new subject, and new application to exploring the meaning of her true art expressions of painting. Yet, her subject and connection to her art and her value to life has not changed at all.
