YOSHIO OKUYAMA - ON MY SCULPTURE - Celestial Visitant
This identity, expressed as philosophy put into shape in the work Celestial Visitant has extremely high speed atomic energy circulating along the side of the slanting sculpture which has energy-containing oval shapes at the top and bottom.
The basis of works hitherto has been movement of energy between oval shapes, two points, sometimes three.
It is not exaggerated explosive energy, often expressed in representational art but a strong streaming energy, with a sense of release, utterly sharp and clear cut.
Using stone, which is a heavy material, it has been designed so the viewer is, not made to feel heavy psychologically, but can appreciate the light and “beauty” produced from it.
