Title: Silent Existence
Artist: Kawakame Tomoko
Tomoko’s minimal pieces radiate a subtle serenity and composure, their design reflecting nature in soft and semi-abstract geologies. Works are uniformly designed through a process of hand-pinching, and receive their stone-like texture by impression — Tomoko taking a rock to the surface in a gentle exfoliation and disruption of the material before airing. ’Silent Existence’ presents an ambiguously figurative form, the depth and definition presented in a distinguished contrast between rough, unglazed exterior surface and an interior void heightened by the use of such a rich glossy black glaze.
