Hiro Yokose’s lyrical depictions of nature feature big, pale skies floating over silvery lakes or rivers lined with trees. Rendered in a subtle palette that captures the quietude of dawn or dusk, his minimal landscapes have a dream-like quality. Each canvas consists of as many as six layers of oil paint and beeswax; in describing his process, Yokose says he never begins with a particular image in mind: “It's like air or a cloud—there is no shape. If I were to chase my imagination, I would probably never finish, never even start a painting.” His work has been said to hover “between a Zen-like minimalist abstraction and a traditional landscape.” Besides the landscapes for which he is best known, Yokose also paints flowers and completely abstract canvases.
