A unique artist with sophisticated style, Yoshida’s Asian influenced self portraits are unprecedented. Her work evokes pertinent questions as to the role of women in modern Asia and is strongly driven by feelings of transformation and fleeting:
“ … when I was three, my mother threw me out of the house. I left clutching a box filled with all my treasures. I went to a public park. The police found me there the next day. Since then, I’ve always felt nomadic, errant, fleeing.”
“Art is above all the experience of transformation. Transformation is, it seems to me, the ultimate value of the work. Art for me has become a space of shifting metamorphosis. My Self-portraits … are only the place and the formula of the mutation.”
