[Fukuoka]Ko MIYAZAKI Sculpture Exhibition February 17[Sat]－March 4[Sun],2018
Lost-wax casting is a traditional technique from the ancient of producing a bronze sculpture that makes a prototype by wax directly. The impression of this kind of technique and material helps me a lot to make the decision of my products' figure. While「The real thrill of the sculpture is the strength of the mass.」I have been working on a special representation that can be lost-wax casting method. The presence of the intangibles, such as the wind or clouds, the sky or space, what are wrapped us isn't the nature of nature? What I exactly wanted to express is the view of life in my work, while looking through the 「Intangible」that meets the space. (Ko MIYAZAKI)
This exhibition is going to present the bronze products from over 20 years ago 「Residence series」,「Plant spirit series」, new work 「Figure series」, and also 「Tuscany’s sculpture sketch」, etc..

In her distinctive style, she starts from the viewpoint that they are living organisms with the same energy as humans, animals and plants. You will experience the moment when all the organisms including yourself become one through the work she creates. We look forward to seeing you at our booth.
