Light & Shadow at the Wichita Art Museum explores the work of two sculptors who create artwork of ethereal beauty: Alyson Shotz and Kumi Yamashita. On loan from the Thoma Foundation is Yamashita’s 2015 sculpture Chair, of which a key component is its cast shadow.

Both artists create sculptures through labor-intensive handwork and trial-and-error experimentation. They are each concerned with expanding bits of matter into large installations, the space-occuping potential of virtually weightless materials, and the variability and mystery of experience.
