Roger Shimomura – Yellow No Same
Dimensions: 5.5 x 10″ each paper
Medium: Twelve silkscreen prints on paper and cloth covered box
Roger Shimomura’s paintings, prints, and theatre pieces address sociopolitical issues of Asian America and have often been inspired by diaries kept by his late immigrant grandmother.
In “Yellow No Same” Shimomura confronts the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II in the 1940s, and comments on America’s inability to distinguish between Japanese and Japanese American people.
Shimomura is in the permanent collections of over 80 museums nation wide. His personal papers and letters are being collected by the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
