Kokoro Studio presents the artwork of Yukako Ezoe


“Bahama Kangaroo” by Yukako Ezoe, is a solo show currently on dispay at Kokoro Studio, 682 Geary St., San Francisco.

Ezoe, a Japanese American artist, designer, and teacher, investigates history and mythology through her fictional landscapes and invented personalities. She mixes cultures and media to narrate a world of romantic, dream-like imagination.

For “Bahama Kangaroo,” Ezoe created self-portraits that extensively use personal symbolism, to represent aspects of historical and popular culture with which she identifies. Her materials reflect herself: bits of Japanese kimono fabric, dark colors representing her love of the night, the image of a percussion instrument that allows her to imagine the elongated resonance of its music upon sight.

The show is on display through Thursday, March 24, Tuesdays through Fridays from 2 to 8 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 7 p.m. and by appointment.
