Yumiko Ono is interested in form and formats. Repetition and reproduction are often seen in her work, which ranges from drawings to sculptures to videos to sound installations. Her aim is to interpret the subjects that she finds, and give them a new order through her point of view, which usually results in laconic expressions. She is currently experimenting with minimalistic geometric forms, particularly those related to the field of architecture.
Yumiko Ono is a contemporary artist who works with various media. Ono completed her BA in Oil Painting in Kyoto, Japan. She then went on to study in various countries including Hungary, Czech Republic and Israel as a government scholarship student before receiving an MA in Intermedia in the Czech Republic.
