Hiro Yokose wasÂ born in Nagasaki, Japan, 1959 and lives and works in the heart of Manhattan, NY. Yokose combines oil and beeswax to create landscapes that appear simultaneously abstract and realistic. Because of the artistâ€™s unique technique of painting, the surfaces of his work have a sensuous and tactile appearance where depth is both an illusion and a reality.

Fortitude I and Fortitude II were inspired by two beautiful trees whose leaves turned gorgeous, seasonal colors, but refused to fall when surrounding trees had succumbed to the weather. The piece is finished on the edges, varnished, wired, and ready to hang.

The eye makes its way to the water through the dunes and beach grass. This piece is part of an ongoing series created with a palette knife and displays unique layering of color and abstract perception. When beginning this particular piece, I wanted to depict the dunes in a very large format and show the expanse of the changing sky. The painting is on gallery wrapped Belgian linen with clean, natural edges. It comes varnished and wired to hang.
Georgia O'Keeffe said you need to look closely to see the true beauty of nature. In a large orchard, one small detail of one leaf is a thing of beauty--this inspired Orchard. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the paint was allowed to drip carefully over the sides so that the work continues beyond its limits. It comes varnished and ready to hang.
