About Mineko Yoshida

Okinawan-born, American-educated artist.There are endless possibilities in the art of abstraction. Formal concerns such as structure, color, and paint application are simply the means, not the end for me. As the inner character of the sitter is rendered by a portrait painter, what could be transmitted by the form of abstraction is boundless. What I have been attempting is to explore the realm of abstraction with what my experiences in life could possibly offer.
