The Kiyosu City Haruhi Art Museum’s 2023 special exhibition will feature sculptor Yoshio Kuriki (1950- ).
Kuriki was born into a family of potters in Seto City and grew up in an environment where the clay and kilns used for pottery were familiar to him. He studied sculpture and expression under Yoshitatsu Yanagihara at Nihon University, and later developed his own style of abstract forms using iron as a material. “Cultivation” is the word that forms the basis of Kuriki’s figurative expression. It is also one of the words deeply related to the concept of sculpture. Kuriki’s sculpture is a way of thinking by moving one’s hands and body to touch the things around one’s body, confronting their changes, and showing these changes to those who wish to pursue a career in the fine arts, thereby fostering the development of artists. The ideas that emerge from Kuriki’s sculptures can be seen as an image of plowing a field and enriching the soil.
This exhibition introduces Kuriki’s large iron works from around 1990, recent ceramic sculptures, and paintings including oil paintings. Kuriki has continued to explore a wide range of methods of figurative expression, and we invite you to view the exhibition space he has created.
