Visited a gallery for the first time I was drawn into the space because of the very quiet white stone sculptures by the Japanese artist Atsuya Tominaga.
The gallery director Shoko Aono and her staff made the visit wonderful not only speaking about the Spheres exhibition including showing us the tools used to make them.
Then they opened drawers filled with beautiful, dramatic,timeless,and peaceful objects made of bronze, fiber, lacquer clay and stone .Objects that spoke not only to the eye but the touch,the heart and the mind.
Of course I asked about photography and was presented with the images of
Takashi Tomo-Oka also born in Japan. I think Takashi maintains a conversation started by Karl Blossfeldt in the 1930's.
