DESCRIPTION

Over the years, the work of Japanese artist Kazuo Kadonaga has been loosely associated with the fluxus school, in that it often involves an interplay of media and the setting up of a determinate system, from which the finished art work results. In his first exhibition with Samuel Freeman, Kazuo Kadonaga will show a series of glass works, ranging from 90 lbs. to 1,900 lbs. Each individual work was completed with a single continuous pouring of molten glass, with pouring times ranging from 24 to 48 hours in length. The finished work reveals itself as a liquid layering of glass--an elegant totem honoring nature's inseparable values of temperature, weight, time and material.
