About the work :

M.160303 is an artwork by Toshio Iezumi, from his 'Move' series.

The Japanese artist’s glass sculptures surprises viewers through their changing aspects and their elegant and poetic presence.  Shades of highly intense or very clear green, real or illusionary volumes, internal spaces that one tries to decipher, unexpected distortions reflected on the surface, an impression of movement created by alternating concave and convex forms...  Glass, with its ability to refract light, is the absolute protagonist in these pieces, brought out by the artist’s skill and experience.  The sculpture’s organic form draws on nature’s elements: the waves made by the wind on the water or grass, the sea’s waves, the stones’ roundness and smoothness.

Toshio Iezumi ‘s sculpturing technique is long and complex.  He starts by gluing glass sheets together, tinted green by the iron content, creating a deeper hued block of glass. He then uses an angle grinder, normally used for carving stone, to shape the sculpture. The next step is to remove the surface scratches with abrasive grinding grits. Finally, polishing with a felt buff gives the sculpture its transparency, and totally changes its appearance. The artist is looking for the perfect balance between shape (with grinding) and texture (with polishing), to bring out the artwork.

In the ‘Move’ series, which began in the 2000’s, the artist presented vertical sculptures standing with a powerful and delicate presence. For the series, Toshio Iezumi worked especially on the waves, alternating convex and concave forms to give the sculptures an effect of movement. The artist also uses a semi-transparent mirror, placed inside the artwork to further accentuate the reflections and light diffusion.

This artwork is sold in a limited edition of 8 copies and IV artist proof. It is sold with its certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
