en iwamura investigates form and space with series of ceramic sculptures

through an iterative series of formal studies, Japanese sculptor en Iwamura investigates the relationship between an object and the space it occupies. en Iwamura has referenced the philosophy of ‘ma,’ which explores how objects within a space serve to sculpt the interstitial void to create the ‘essence’ of the space. the artist’s sculpted objects, in turn, sculpt the space which surrounds them. the occupation of the object within a space influences a viewer’s relationship with that space. the simplicity of the objects defines this experience. a rhythmic surface texture which is methodically swept across the surfaces of the gently curving volumes implies new seams and directionality. in some instances the artist personifies his forms with subtle, expressive features. images courtesy of en Iwamura
