Yasuko Hasumura (b. 1958)

1958

Born in Hokkaido

1980

Graduated from Tama Art University

1982

MFA, Tama Art University

Yasuko Hasumura majored in oil painting at Tama Art University, producing and exhibiting mainly abstract paintings and contemporary bas-relief works. It was after this that she had a fateful encounter with Noh Theatre and began searching for materials that could help her express the unique essence of that universe, leading her eventually to ink. By affixing alternating layers of ultra-thin Japanese paper and ink to canvas, Hasumura creates artworks that seem to connote the air itself and has given birth to her own original genre, one that leaps beyond the boundaries of Nihonga and ink painting.
