Shopping Carts


Artist Taizo Yamamoto is fascinated by shopping carts and their sculptural variation, they’re perpetual works in progress, and his drawings are meant to freeze them as “still lifes”. You begin to see glimpses of how their owner’s live; elements of weather protection (tarps, umbrellas, bubble wrap, sleeping bags), bottle/can currency, and even personalized objects like stuffed animals. No longer a subject that immediately conjures up images of dirt,  the drawings are anything but, these are beautiful, articulate drawings built up over the period of five years.
