Yuriko Kubota

Yuriko Kubota continues exploring her double-layer technique, which involves placing two photographs on top of each other and meticulously cutting thin vertical strips of the top layer to reveal slivers of the image beneath. This merging of two images creates an effect of vibration, where movement and stillness play off each other, and lines between two and three-dimensional space are blurred. Yuriko studied oil painting at Joshibi University of art and design in Tokyo, Japan. Approaching photography as an extension of her painting, she uses it as a tool to study and reconfirm her thoughts as well as record what she feels in her journey through life.
