"Fragments" — Kumi Yamashita

Untitled

I love this piece.

FRAGMENTS_blue-2

Wrote the artist,

FRAGMENTS_RED-3

"'Fragments' consists of resin tiles which cast the shadow profiles of 40 New Mexican residents of different backgrounds and ethnicities, people I met while traveling throughout New Mexico in 2008. It is both testament and celebration of the people whose names may never make it into the history books or history museums, but who definitely make up the rich fabric of life in a pueblo, city, county, and state."
