Enomoto Katsuhiko 榎本勝彦
ENOMOTO Katsuhiko was born in Okayama prefecture in 1952.
Mr. Enomoto’s works appear to combine the nuance of modernism with the aesthetics of Japan lacquerware, which has the oldest history in the world. The sculptures and vessels created while crossing the border between art and craft have a unique appeal, balancing the texture of lacquer with modern forms.
In this exhibition his work is exhibited at Nemurizuka or the lying poem monument at the back of the garden. This spot itself is considered to be a work of art, created by two of Japan’s leading artists. It was designed by MAEKAWA Kunio and constructed by NAGARE Masayuki as a monument to the poet TANIGUCHI Kokyo.
Against the backdrop of this wonderful stage, his works seem to glow with a gentle and eloquent message.
