Alison Jacques Gallery is pleased to announce that Takuro Kuwata will be the subject of a solo exhibition, ‘Day After Day’, at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Kyoto.
By engaging with the centuries-old traditions of Japanese ceramics, Kuwata creates innovative works that have attracted attention worldwide. Entering into nuanced dialogue with these traditions through his contemporary sensibility, his work brings renewed vibrancy to ceramic aesthetics.
In turn, the scale of his production has continued to grow over the years. ‘To create is to be driven by the reality that we are living in today, by its encounters and partings, and sometimes by instinctive impulse. The act of giving form to the process of feeling emotions.’
