For some reason, when I saw these images for the first time a few hours ago, the first thought that popped into my head was Ron Burgundy saying “by the beard of Zeus!” Â These pieces below are just outstanding to me. Â Kumi Yamashita has created many of these “shadow works” before – she is absolutely brilliant at painting with darkness.
Check these out – you have to see her work. Â You have to see it. Â You also have to check out Kumi’s portfolio. Â Kumi, you blew me away.
That one is just freaky! Â I love it!
A commenter left an image on the original poster’s site (thanks, My Modern Met!) with another very striking image, created by Kumi, too:
Thanks, Nicola Andrews, for bringing this to my attention!!!
