Yuriko Yamaguchi has an extensive career working in sculpture and site specific installation. Her work is often composed of many smaller, individual parts in wood, metal, stone, and paper whose shapes are as recognizable as they are enigmatic, though always organic and fluid. Apart from her public art projects, Yamaguchi creates temporary installations that have appeared in numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums in both the United States and Japan, including the Field Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and SECCA. Born in Japan, Yuriko Yamaguchi immigrated to the United States where she acquired degrees from Princeton University, UC Berkeley, and the University of Maryland. She is currently a professor of studio art at George Washington University in Washington, DC.
