Eisaku Ando / 安藤榮作


Eisaku Ando gives expression to forms depending on how he strikes his materials. The countless carvings on the tree bark that come about through this process are simultaneously delicate yet forceful; this is a unique characteristic of Ando’s work. Furthermore, the power which is condensed into the center of the wood with each blow also relates to the works’ world view that powerfully reaches out to the cosmos. Some of the pieces Eisaku Ando creates are solemn and serious, while others are humorous, sometimes cute.
