Yasue Sakaoka: Suspended 3-D Paper Sculpture
Exhibit dates: February 8–March 11, 2011
Born in Japan and currently residing in Columbus, Ohio, Yasue Sakaoka reveals her Japanese heritage in large-scale, three-dimensional paper sculptures that reflect the influence of the ancient folk art of origami. In addition to keeping the old ways of origami alive, she has also expanded the horizons of the tradition with more experimental sculptural work using paper, fiber, metal, bronze casting and other materials. Sakaoka's awards include the 2006 Ohioana Citation for Art, the 2007 Ohio Heritage Fellowship for Material Culture and the 2010 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award.
