Samyak Yamauchi

I paint offbeat narratives with colorful and often abstracted imagery. I paint intuitively, without any plan or outcome in mind. Using acrylic paint, pencils and oil pastels, I lay down layer after layer of bold paint strokes and marks, wait and watch for the expression of an image to appear – sort of like seeing pictures in the clouds. I paint the negative space around the image and develop the painting to somewhere on the continuum of representational to abstract. I always get a sense of a story that I refer to in text in the painting, in the title or written elsewhere, but the paintings, of course, speak individually to each viewer.
