Yuki Onodera's debut exhibition in the US with Milo Gallery features two series by the internationally recognized Japanese artist. Transvest and The Eleventh are quite different but share common threads.

In Transvest we see identifiable human silhouettes at a distance- a flamenco dancer, a cowboy, a boxer; as we approach we fid the figure's form to be filled or made of cut-out shapes of architectural and natural forms. The final image is the result of careful manipulation, physical and digital collage and re-printing.

The Eleventh Finger features spontaneous street shots taken at haste without the use of the viewfinder. The result is a soft-focus or blurred image over which a fragment of lattice-cut paper covers the faces of the figures in a photograph/photogram print.

The handling of the work- the construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction employed in both series pushes us to consider themes of identity and anonymity, public vs private, the individual and the sense of a greater whole.
