Izumi Yokoyama’s intricate line drawings and time-haunted installations explore and embrace human struggles within the context of nature. Apparitional motifs in her works are dark and transcending. The concepts are characterized by the presence of absence in her use of negative space. Yokoyama meditatively threads ephemeral and eternal, while evoking nostalgia for the unknown.
