Sweet and surreal, warm and whimsical, the some of the most recent work of Oskay Yamamoto will delight viewers to no end. Although the appeal is immediate apparent by way of its innocent direction, there is something more significant lying beneath the surface of Oskay Yamamoto's works of art.

Collected under the heading, House of Daydreamers, for Oskay Yamamoto's latest exhibit, the illustrations, sculptures and installations all revolve around the notion of home. Oskay Yamamoto shares, "Being away from Japanese culture helped me appreciate the traditions and old customs better—and it was the same for my family. After leaving home, I realized how good my mother's food was! I feel like sometimes you have to be away to appreciate the true value of familiar things you take for granted."
