David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of recent and new works by Yutaka Sone, on view at the gallery's 525 West 19th Street location. This will be the artist's seventh solo show since his first exhibition with the gallery in 1999.
Across a wide range of media–predominantly sculpture but also painting, drawing, photography, video, and performance–Sone's work revolves around a tension between realism and perfection. A conceptual framework, paired with a meticulous attention to detail, has characterized his practice since the early 1990s, informing equally his self-contained jungle environments, life-size roller coasters, magnified snowflakes, and staged events. His sculptural works in particular attest to a profound interest in landscapes, whether natural or architectural, and their extraordinary ability to capture light relates them to a genre primarily associated with painting and photography.
