ART: Consetellation by Kumi Yamashita

by Jon "Law" Heredia

Colossal’s Christopher Jacobs is downright amazed…and we are too!

Constellation is an ongoing series of portraits by New York artist Kumi Yamashita known most prominently for her innovative light and shadow sculptures. Each image is constructed from a single unbroken black thread wound through a dense array of galvanized nails mounted on a painted white board, meaning that the darker areas within the portrait are formed solely from the density of the string.
