"Sora Miagetara, Looking Out at the World"
This exhibition presents works by Satoco Yamamoto drawn from the perspective of a person standing on a street corner in Tokyo or New York City looking out at the world. These works attempt to connect with people across geographical borders and cultural lines through common life experiences in the city. For example, four drawings attempt to convey the psychological progression of one couple from childhood to adolescence and then to adulthood. Additionally, works related to sports are exhibited to honor the Olympics that will be held in Tokyo in 2020.
