Description

Public sculpture by Hikaru Yumura from Japan.

  • Materials: Granite

  • Dimensions: 186 x 70 x 70

About the Artist:

Born in Japan, Hikaru Yumura received a BA Fine Art (Sculpture) from Tokyo University of the Arts in 1971 and then went on to study sculpture at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts, Paris in 1972. He resides in Tokyo, and has had a prestigious career exhibiting extensively predominantly in Japan and internationally in Australia, Amsterdam, France and India. He has been the recipient of numerous important awards for his sculpture and his work is represented in public collections including the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto.

Yumura’s work is borne from his closeness and connection with nature. He begins his work by having a dialogue with the natural granite stone he selects to carve and polish. The artist has an interest in the notions of the organic and the inorganic and in his work we can identify solidity and fluidity working rhythmically at once. He produces abstracted geometric forms, however they are very expressive in their non-representational appearance.
