This event has ended.
Five years after Masaya Hashimoto’s 2014 solo exhibition ‘Isso Ichiboku (A Single Blade of Grass, a Single Piece of Wood)’ comes this latest exhibition. In addition to sculpture made of deer antler and bone, on exhibit this time is a collotype printed photograph of his sculpture that will be published in an album of his work next year. Also on display will be the paintings ‘Sudden Shower Over a River Village’ by Maruyama Okyo and a Kasuga Deer Mandala from the Kamakura period.
Hashimoto’s career as a sculptor goes back to his experience traveling deep in the mountains of India in the year 2000. There he picked up and polished a piece of driftwood found along a river, and was fascinated by the way in which the inherent qualities of such a natural object could be brought out by the hand of man. Since then, as he draws forth the forms of his sculpture, he has single-mindedly sought to penetrate the depths of both the materials and the subjects he takes on. In recent years, he has used deer antler and bone to craft delicate sculptures of the flowers and plants he finds himself surrounded by in everyday life.
