October 15 — November 12, 2011
The works in Unfolding Light represent work created between 2010 and 2011 and are influenced by Japanese architecture and artifacts, specifically, forms that convey the poetic connections between man-made constructions and the timelessness of nature. The sculptures in the exhibition are made from translucent cast resin, Bird’s Eye Maple and Baltic Birch. The forms are influenced by elements in a residence by the architect Yoneda, and and a bangasa umbrella from the late Tashio Period. The prints include etchings, photo polymer gravure and silk screens and document the process of developing the three dimensional work in the exhibition.
