“I abandoned canvas for museumboard. The choice of this support enriches possibilities through the interplay of cutting, folding and layering.” “I research the economy of means. One sign, painted with the game, crease, empty, let me see the door of the infinite.” –Roger Bensasson

Yumiko Kimura is a Japanese artist based in Paris. She studied sculpture at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, Italy and has exhibited in France and Japan, as well as Brussels, Moscow, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Bratislava, and Italy.

Yumiko Kimura works multi-layered glass around an axis referencing the world of geometric abstraction with overtones of constructivism or dynamism.
