Yambe Tam and Yuichiro Kikuma have been working alongside
each other for their six-month residency at the Muse. Despite not
 always using the studio at the same time, a certain symbiosis
between their resulting works is evident.

Yuichiro has developed a series of work that tests the limits of
painting as a medium. He likens his process to weaving as he
applies a semi-automatic method to painting. The resulting patterns
combine systematic and repetitive actions to a unique whole defined
 by the marks' unique irregularities

Yambe's practice is not limited to a particular discipline or medium
The paintings and objects she created during her time at the Muse
form part of an ongoing project that combines ancient materials with
contemporary processes, with the ultimate aim of recreating an
experience of transcendence.

With the Barbican Arts Trust and Tate Modern already on their
respective CVs, Yambe Tam and Yuichiro Kikuma are rapidly emerging
onto the London and international art scenes.

The exhibition is part of the Kensington & Chelsea Art Weekend 
celebrating the borough's rich heritage from 28 to 30 June.

Yambe Tam creates multi-layered and experiential installations as outcomes of a research based practice that exmaines ancient thinking and modern theories, traditional materials and digital processes.
Yuichiro Kikuma is a painter whose work is based on systematic processes and pre-determined methods that are informed by the studio environment and the characteristics of materials and tools.
