Lot 316 - Yuki Aruga - Untitled: Rose 1
Linoprint on Japanese Paper
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Signed on verso
Drawing on personal experiences and her mixed Japanese-British heritage, Yuki Aruga's works are a manifestation of her ongoing investigation into how we are influenced by our personal and collective histories. Yuki's current works are inspired by European still life paintings and religious iconography of the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as eastern philosophies and Japanese aesthetic principles.
Yuki is currently studying for an MA in Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School.
