Atsuko Yamamoto is a contemporary artist with a background in embroidery.
She graduated from the University of London, Goldsmiths College postgraduate course of textile and embroidery in 1980.
I don’t just want to embroid, but I want you to create so that you too can feel the intense joy that I experience in being here. The colours, textures, and light are so fierce and warm to the soul. Every piece I create captures a part of my life, and I am honoured to share them with you.
Atsuko Yamamoto, as she started to work with embroidery, she is based on working with fabric, very often with silk, cotton, but she had some exhibitions with stones, papers, feathers in case of her the inspiration she uses every material without any limitation.
She has her exhibitions very regularly in Japan, but she is also teaching at some universities, but her passion is to create her world, express her love with her way.
The strong point of her artistic work is, to create the space with fabric, as a living space, with a shadow who can move by the Sun, or fabric moves by the breeze, or by the movement of the persons passing by.
She is from Kobe, where she was born and living until the earthquake of 1995, then she moved to Tokyo.
