Hayashi Takeshi: Haku-u

28 July – 22 September 2011

Hayashi Takeshi, Haku-u, 2010, white marble

Hayashi Takeshi is one of Japan’s most impressive and talented stone sculptors. His works, often large-scale pieces created by splitting and paring stone, invite the viewer into a realm of serene contemplation, sometimes through a resemblance to ancient ruins or perhaps by digging up intriguing fragments out of everyday memory. Takeshi was born in Gifu City in 1956 and studied sculpture at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music where he is currently Associate Professor.


Exhibition supported by the Daiwa Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.

Irish artist Martin Finnin’s paintings are abstract, expressive and a celebration of the sheer sensuality of colour.
