Nature Into Art is the debut exhibition by acclaimed Japanese ceramic artist Shozo Michikawa. The exhibition opens on January 22nd at 6 pm at Singapore Contemporary art fair, where it will be on view till January 24th. After that it will be on view at Di Legno Gallery from January 26th to February 20th.
Titled “Nature into Art”, this exhibition by Shozo Michikawa will present 20 of his sculptural works, all of which offer a rare insight into the wabi sabi of Japanese aesthetic, and which display the nostalgic allure and forgotten charm of nature. As Michikawa notes,
“[T]he works created by nature … contain a power that can never be imitated by human hands.”
From a seemingly nondescript sphere that reminds one of the Japanese marimo, to a widebrimmed vessel with wind rippling across its surface, to a coiled silhouette eerily similar to that of a hostile snake poised to strike, there is as much variety in Michikawa’s works as there is diversity in nature. Each sculpture is fresh and novel, unconventional and different, and yet there is something vaguely familiar about their twists and turns, their lines and contours, that intrigues and soothes, fascinates and comforts.
