Fukami Sueharu: Porcelain Sculptures, 1980 – 2014

16 September - 31 October 2014
We are delighted to announce our second exhibition of masterpieces by Fukami Sueharu, widely regarded as one of the greatest ceramic artists of the last forty years.  
The show features thirty sculptures made between 1980 and 2014, a majority from an exhibition held last year at the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon. Alongside important early pieces, we will display two more recent large-scale works, Kitsu (Upright), 2013, and Landscape II, which was on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from 2003 to 2013.
Both in his own country and across the seas Fukami Sueharu is now even more widely honored than when he was in 2008, when we held a successful exhibition of his work. While his mature abstract style embodies a contemporary global vision, it also reflects a traditional disregard for the time and effort required to produce these works of flawless beauty and elegance.

A fully illustrated publication with an essay by Shinya Maezaki accompanies the exhibition.
