Taizo Kuroda : White Porcelain - Meiping
May 02-Jun 22 2019
- 27 days left
Taizo Kuroda : In his Meiping vases, what is seen and what is not seen are equally important and create a dynamic between interiority and exteriority that play out before the viewer. The ''pure whites'' of the unglazed yakishime porcelain seem to absorb and reflect light in even measure. The vases' sensuous yet firm lines contrast with their commanding yet fragile appearance. An illusory sensation persists - these gravity-bound pieces seem buoyant. Revealed in this interplay between hand and clay is not just the artist's extraordinary sensibility but also his restraint, fascination, and humility towards his material. Opening Reception with the artist: Thu, May 2, 6-8pm.
