In the serene embrace of the Japanese Friendship Garden and Museum, “Beyond Form: Transient Echoes” invites you on a journey through the ephemeral essence of existence. Inspired by the timeless wisdom of Zen philosophy, Glover created site-specific paintings that echo the impermanence and transience inherent in both nature and the material world.

Within this exhibition, you’ll encounter version of koi fish rendered in abstract colors and glitch forms, nodding to the echoes of our contemporary culture within the traditional motifs of Japanese art. These depictions serve as reminders of the fluidity of time and the ever-changing nature of our surroundings. Drawing inspiration from the JFGM’s karesansui rock garden, Glover’s paintings offer non-traditional aerial views, where the rocks seem to float in the cosmos, liberated from the constraints of physicality and gravity. Through these compositions, she aims to evoke a sense of timeless tranquility and the interconnectedness of all things.

In Beyond Form: Transient Echoes, we explore the delicate interplay between impermanence and aesthetics, inviting contemplation of the profound connections that bind us to the natural world.


Yumiko Glover’s artwork captures a range of inspirations drawn from her cross-cultural experiences, as well as the history and philosophy of Japan alongside contemporary scenes from the U.S. Glover’s work is part of collections at the Honolulu Museum of Art and has been exhibited at various public venues, including the Los Angeles International Airport, the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design, the Torrance Art Museum, and in the United Nations’ anniversary publication in 2021. In 2023, Glover completed a mural project in NYC, held a solo exhibit at the Washington Studio School in Washington D.C., and exhibited at the Sullivan Goss Gallery in Santa Barbara. Originally from Japan, Glover received her BFA from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and her MFA from UC Santa Barbara. She is currently based in Los Angeles, where she teaches art courses at CSU Channel Islands and UC Santa Barbara.
