Kayo Yokoyama

Showing at Lost Bear Gallery, Leura currently is artist Kayo Yokoama with these exquisite glass works.

Kayo Yokoyama graduated from Sydney College of the Arts (MFA) in 2011 and is based in Blackheath, Blue Mountains.

Kayo emigrated to Australia in 1997 to pursue a dream to study art. A love of objects and working with the transparent medium of glass has enabled Kayo to express her concept of home. She says, β€œThe landscape in an object is a metaphor, where the chair represents where I belong; homeland is a place I search for. Whilst I am sitting among trees, I am in my homeland.”
