Group show: Tanya Marcuse, Linda Matalon, Yumiko Ohmori, Sarah Rapson
January 14, 1993 - February 27, 1993
Yoshii Gallery will present a group exhibition featuring the works of four young women artists: two from the United States, one from Japan, and one from England.
Linda Matalon’s first solo exhibition, at Yoshii Gallery from October-November 1992, was extremely well received. Elizabeth Hess of the Village Voice said of Matalon’s wax-and-gauze sculpture: “[it] has a horrific beauty that both mourns and celebrates the difficult state of femaleness.” Matalon will be showing one new sculpture and drawing.
Photographer Tanya Marcuse takes pictures of body parts that become lush and deep when she makes them into platinum-palladium prints.
Yumiko Ohmori works with seeds, coral, mecurochrome, and sheets of rubber and zinc. Her work has been exhibited in Japan and Germany. This is her first show in the United States.
Reviewing British painter Sarah Rapson’s one-woman show at the Trial Balloon last year, Eileen Myles wrote in Art in America that “she flints her blunt and highly charged images passionately at you from afar.” Rapson will be showing her new paintings.
