◄ Overview

Ido Yoshimoto

Maquette

To understand the work of Ido Yoshimoto, it is helpful to know at least a little about J.B. Blunk, the great avatar of the “back to the land” movement. Yoshimoto was raised in the tiny, out-of-the-way, and very beautiful surroundings of Inverness, California. Blunk built his own house and studio here, back in the 1950s, and as a child, Yoshimoto was able to observe the great master at work with his chainsaw, shaping massive salvaged planks and burl structures into functional sculpture. That influence is still strongly felt in Yoshimoto’s work. The maquettes seen in Object & Thing, made from Californian eucalyptus, are representative of his essentialist vocabulary. It’s as if the forest itself had been distilled into pure geometry.
