In Carrie Yamaoka's art, you are integral to the completion of the work. Yes, you. Some of her paintings skip the traditional canvas, opting instead for polyester film and resin, giving the surface of her works a reflective and molten-like finish. The New York artist's first solo museum exhibition reflects 30 years of work. Yamaoka's work is largely process-based, meaning it focuses on the process—the act of creating the art—as its main subject. In emphasizing the work's creation, it can help us (the artist and the viewer) think about things like time, transience, movement, beginning and ending. If I go in and look at deep blue #3 tomorrow, the painting will contain a different version than the Jasmyne who gazed at it for the first time. Yamaoka's paintings remind us viewers that our relationship to art mirrors our relationship to ourselves—always changing, never static, not quite capturable, but always there. by Jas Keimig
