creates objects primarily by casting & sculpting of glass. In the
past, glass blowing has been more of a third party function in this
process. In this new exhibition he brings a new dimension to his
work with the addition of glass blowing to his creations.
objects combine making a glass bird and building a glass cage around
the bird, layer upon layer. More layers are added, the cage’s weight
becomes heavier and control is more difficult,
The cage makes
the bird attractive?
If we talk
about the difference between a bird in a cage and humans at home or
in society, many people might think of “freedom & rights”. Since
the Japanese tsunami and nuclear power plant accident occurred we
still continue to use nuclear energy, etc. I am wondering why the
“freedom & rights” that we talk about are so different from a bird
in a cage? ………………….
view points are cynical & serious, the glass bird in glass cage is
turned out as beautiful and very decorative. Lost in dark, a light
will lead us and give us a motivation to keep us moving forward.
Beauty and decorative manners are the light in this work and
supporting us. Believe it or not, the fact is that these objects
inspire me to express my thoughts in this way.
