oil, acrylic and wax on polyester (triptych) Neo-romantic painter Hiro Yokose fuses multiple layers of wax and oil paint to create mysterious, veiled landscapes illuminated with flashes of light in the sky and reflections on the water. His works are elegant landscapes that impart the viewer with a sense of contemplation and stillness. His technique involves a unique layering of beeswax and oil paint giving his work the incredibly rich sense of depth and texture. Yokose’s painting style evokes a traditional Japanese painting aesthetic of delicate, lyrical greens, browns, and blues, yet the atmospheric works posses their won sense of serenity and postmodernist balance between painterly abstraction and representation. The new work is punctuated with warmer golden casts of light to elicit pure and tranquil moments of luminosity and space. Playing with the viewer’s perception Yokose’s sensual works invite engagement in a simultaneous experience of recognition and mystery. Hiro Yokose’s work is included in many public collections including San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose, CA; Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; Goldman Sachs and Co., San Francisco, CA; Microsoft, Redmond, WA; Boeing Corp., Chicago, IL; TransAmerica Corporation, San Francisco, CA; Prudential, New York, NY; and Citibank, New York, NY.
