One of my favouroite Japanese Artists is Yuko Yamamoto. I own a small book titled 'Home and Form - 24 cut work card book' which has 24 reproductions of her works as postcards. I can't bring myslef to remove even one to place on my wall, I love flipping through the book and being able to feel the texture of the paper.
Yuko works with collage and creates the most interesting compositions by using positive and negative space. Her subjects include shoes, flowers, food and vessels to name just a few.
If you are in Japan you can see Yuko's work in an exhibition now until March 16 - see details below
