    Erde Ich malte mir aus ein neuer Baum wüchse aus diesem Erdhügel empor Wie Inanna Ishtar die Göttin sumerischer Mythen wollte ich den entwurzelten Baum auflesen und ihn in meinen geweihten Garten bringen Ich wollte dass der Baum dort läge und schliefe und stellte mir dabei eine neue Welt vor so wie jener Traum von der Welt der dem Nabel des indischen Gottes Vishnu in Form einer Lotusblüte entspringt Wie schon der Religionshistoriker Mircea Eliade schrieb Wenn die Pflanze und wir demselben Uterus entstammen sind wir Zwillinge Wir sind durch die Trennung nicht gestorben wie es bei siamesischen Zwillingen passieren kann aber irgendwie gehören wir zusammen In meinem Global Tree Project versuche ich die Wunde die diese Trennung hinterlassen hat zu heilen und unsereVerbindung mit der Natur zu erneuern damit wir unsere Ganzheit zurückerlangen und ein neues Sehen lernen Übersetzung Elvira Lackmann Berlin DE RERUM NATURA on the nature of things M y ongoing body of work takes its name from De Rerum Natura On the Nature of Things the book by Roman poet and philosopher Lucretius Nothing can ever be created out of nothing even by divine power Visible objects therefore do not perish utterly since nature repairs one thing from another and allows nothing to be born without the aid of another s death A waterfall a rainbow a fallen tree a stone a crystal clay whether virtual or physical these materials provenance is essential to convey to viewers that perfect crystallized moment of stillness and the profound depth of particularity presented by the elusive power of being totally present in nature Traveling to remote areas has informed my work from the beginning In nature I experience a concord essential and integral to my artistic practice The resultant work becomes a visual record of my experience of landscape and a conduit for connection between nature and humanity Like sedimentary rocks my work is created with layer on layer of memory and emotion And like metamorphic rock each work is morphed or altered by new connections between each stratum Unexpected associations and epiphanies emerge creating the whole Cicninnati OH 2015 La materia vivente è uno specifico tipo di roccia una antica e nello stesso tempo eternamente una roccia giovane Vladimir Vernadsky L a mia passione per i minerali e fossili influenzava formava il mio lavoro per il lungo Mentre studiavo la pittura e l affresco a Kyoto andavo spesso alle montagne fiumi e miniere abbandonate per raccogliere i fossili e minerali Erano affascinanti non solo per la loro bellezza ma sopratutto per il rapporto perfetto e completo tra loro e le loro matrici Prenderli direttamente dalle loro matrici rocce era un atto completamente diverso da raccoglierli a una spiagga o un fiume Per rimuoverli da queste masse di roccia avevo besogno di ceselli e martelli Quando ho visto per la prima volta innmerevoli cristalli di quarzo nella piccola fessura in un angolo di una roccia immensa mi hanno profondamente commosso e la bellezza olistica ha apparso come qualcosa di

YAMAMOTO Global Tree Project DAMIANI Bologna Italy 2012 Turner Yamamoto s transformation of gallery space into sanctified space recalls the history of museum structures Throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the architecture of many European and American museums was specifically designed to emulate classical Greek and Roman temples When Hanging Garden was dismantled the live birch tree was once again planted in the ground beside the Holy Cross Church and the dead birch was given to students at the Art Academy of Cincinnati to use in new sculptures This work then is a story of life death and rebirth a living thing in a dead space and a dead organism reawakening a decommissioned church As with Disappearances the artist has revived pieces of detritus through artistic intervention and spiritual intention to create a transcendental experience Justine Ludwig Rooney E Ashley 100 Midwestern Artists Schiffer Publishing PA USA 2012 SiTE LAB ARTPRIZE SiTE LAB U of M

Sleeping Tree to reach this state and in years to come its spirit will live on as a nurse tree at once completing and perpetuating the cycle By isolating one tree in the artificial context of a gallery Turner Yamamoto adds intimacy to what is a continual occurrence in the forest The impact of this wondrous act is undeniable In shepherding the transformation the artist awakened viewers of all ages to the simple truth we too engage in the cycle of life And as we draw comfort from this communion we acknowledge our tacit complicity in violating the natural order and our shared responsibility of care giving Back at Dogwood Elementary the students address Sleeping Tree by its proper name Grasping the project s spirituality they are inspired to create their own artworks The message has indeed come full circle Sarah Tanguy O Sullivan Michael A Haiku to Nature in Reston The Washington Post 17 10 2008 An awareness that the succession of the seasons takes place not just outside us but also within us In every seed just as in every sleeping tree and indeed in each of us there is the potential to awaken in another form from a slumber that only seems eternal If not life after death then life in death The Earth itself then is both subject matter and art material To the extent that Sleeping Tree works and I mean both the installation and the exhibition that takes its name from it it works like poetry By making connections between what may seem disparate elements Between the animate and the inanimate Art and artlessness Man and nature Life and Death Joyce Kilmer wrote I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree At the Greater Reston Arts Center Turner Yamamoto has taken those words to heart Michael O Sullivan Lindholm Fanny Papperskonst I naturens färger

Abstractions The Washington Post 14 03 2008 Earth sky moon sun It s a veritable environmental science class inside Mu Project where Shinji Turner Yamamoto exhibits abstract paintings and wall works many incorporating ash and several painted by raindrops The works in the artist s rainbow series were made in part as raindrops fell onto a layer of ash and formed abstract patterns he then sealed the ash onto clear acetate and suspended the page over colored canvas The result looks like clouds obscuring a rainbow In the gallery s rear room dramatically lit gold and silver leafed abstract paintings

such works as the triptych Constellation or others from a series of Nebula paintings Turner Yamamoto evokes an infinity of a very different sort one embodied in the heavens Yet his work is just as often earthbound as in Sleeping Vishnu Tree inspired by an uprooted oak Working in media that include milk henna rainwater
