Hard Bodies: Contemporary Japanese Lacquer Sculpture
By: Andreas Marks
Companion Catalogue for the Exhibition, “Hard Bodies: Contemporary Japanese Lacquer Sculpture“.
Over the past thirty years, a small but enterprising circle of lacquer artists has pushed the medium in new directions by creating large-scale sculptures, works both conceptually innovative and exploitive of lacquer’s natural virtues. Featuring thirty works by sixteen artists, Hard Bodies details the first ever exhibition of contemporary Japanese lacquer sculpture in the U.S.
