Japanese artist Yasuaki Onishi
showcased Empty Sculpture at ArtCourt Gallery in Osaka.
Wire framed structures coated in a dripping black glue were suspended around light, with movement generated from air-conditioning ducts, casting shadows that reflect patterns on the walls and creating a gentle yet surreal experience for the viewer.
Visualising the negative space as being integral to the work, Yasuaki Onishi’s work traces forms that appear artificial and yet at times seem to reflect forms found inspired by nature.
Having exhibited in Japan and internationally, Onishi’s installation works explore the domain beyond human understanding such as ‘mountains, glacier caves, windy open sea with waves and silhouette of nebula.’
