The Jury will evaluate according to the following criteria:
As an autodidact, my work is the outcome of years of persistence, trial an error upon the theme of tridimensional geometry and the “platonic” search of the illusion of the “Truth”, by means of the development of structures which could perfectly be described as illustrated equations of natural subjects: shells, butterflies’ spirals, etc. do all by hand, on my drawing board with classical architectural drawing tools (a compass, protractor, squares and rules) and do not use any kind of computer software whatsoever.rafael-araujo.com
Umemoto's art is rooted in Americanness: His varied creations take their impetus from a desire to start settlements and to colonize wild lands, where nature is always on the verge of resuming its rights. When one sees Umemoto’s architecture sculptures, one thinks of the modernist complex of Brasilia by Niemeyer, lost in the Amazonian jungle, or of the complex of Chandigarh by Le Corbusier, in the heart of India. The walls rising towards nowhere, the curves running into ceilings, and the staircases leading into the void are reminiscent of the mysterious Prisons of Piranesi. One way or another, these are always works where imagination joins forces with a contemplative discipline.davidumemoto.com
