Over the summer I attended a first Thursday art preview event at Blue Star Art Complex in San Antonio while I was interning at Artpace. One of the galleries we stopped into featured work from *local artist, Yuko Fukuzumi, who silkscreens most of her brightly colored, origami-inspired prints. I fell in love with Yuko’s work, and one print in particular, that is now on exhibit at D Berman Gallery in Wimberly, Texas.
Maco Moco | serigraph | 12 x 10 1/2 inches | 2011
I was going use a (much crappier) photo (below) that I snapped with my phone to show you the print that I REALLY want to have, but when I just did a Google search of Yuko, I found (a much better image of) the print being used to promote her recently-opened show at D Berman Gallery. This is making me think that I should go ahead and snag it before someone else does! Her prints are even more amazing in person…I especially loved this print because of her layering of both metallic and flat inks, which created a really dynamic play with dimension.

*I can’t verify if Yuko can be considered a local Texas artist because I saw on her blog that she recently moved from San Antonio…where are you living now, Yuko?
