Working in salt, Motoi Yamamoto creates fragile landscapes in a meditative process that examines the cycle of life returning to the earth or questioning loss. His ephemeral diaries are labyrinths or patterns that trace the path of a memory through time. It was the loss of his sister to brain cancer that served as the impetus for this method of working. He is currently showing in Washington at the Bellevue Arts Museum with several solo shows coming later in the year.
