Juror - Kensuke Yamada
Kensuke Yamada attended Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA, where he received his BA. He continued his ceramics education at the University of Montana, receiving his MFA in 2009. Since then, Yamada has been a Resident Artist at the Archie Bray Foundation, MT, The Clay Studio, Philadelphia, PA, and a Guest Artist/ instructor at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University Philadelphia, among others. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Arkansas Little Rock, AR. Yamada creates layered narratives within his figurative works. "ORIGIN" is an exhibit that explores the concept of home and how it is defined, personally and culturally, by looking at different personal narratives, family histories, and cultural practices. It is the process of learning more about oneself and discovering the "true" self. It involves understanding what makes a person unique. Also, it requires people to be open to new experiences and willing to take risks to better understand who we are and what we want out of life. It can also involve reflecting on one's past, understanding one's values, and exploring one's passions.
