Artist(s): Kazuhiro ITO
Date: 23 May - 22 Jun 2014

We are pleased to announce 7th solo exhibition by a sculptor Ito Kazuhiro at the hpgrp GALLERY TOKYO.

It is a general process for bronze sculpture to cast from the original form made of beeswax. Ito, however, had not made the original form for long time. Instead of that, he created works with his original method that forms from a lump of bronze itself since he tells that ”feels a distance to the shape” in the practice of shifting the material.
Now he returned to the method of lost-wax casting to create works because he started to understand about bronze recently, and beeswax is suitable material to represent a sense of “sentimental” that he feels.

Ito has been challenging to an eternally question “What is sculpture?” over the past 20 years with consideration and study of bronze, which makes his range of representation expands.
He manipulates Bronze, which is permanent material remaining the figure over the several thousand years, and including a factor of time in extraordinary length. We would appreciate your coming and seeing his rich expression of bronze works.
