Uchiyama’s paintings seek to explore organic structures inherent in nature. Geometric forms, comprised of flattened areas of color, are variously organized by rhythm and interval. Primary colors – red, yellow and blue – vibrate and shift, forming compositions of a Platonic order which produce multiple readings and suggest alternate levels of reality.

These ideas were further developed by working in watercolor this summer in the town of Otranto, Italy, during an artist residency with the Bau Institute. The Salento region, an area rich in groves and grottos, is the site of numerous ancient cultures, each built upon the other. Strata represents layers of time – historical and personal – which are embedded in the process of painting.
