I love both the source of Niyoko’s sculptures and how glass plays with light and evokes emotion. Please enlarge the first photo for a sense of how stunning this work truly is.
I’ve been to Bristol Museum with friends today and one of the highlights was a creation by Ikuta Niyoko. ‘Ku (Free Essence 32)’, is made from thin slices of laminated glass joined together to make it three dimensional. Niyoko begins by drawing to capture an emotion and explore Buddhist concepts, as well as the complex reflections an refractions of light.
I hope you enjoy this work as much as I did, do you agree that it’s a good example of ‘Twist’? I think it fits well for this weeks Photo Challenge. Click an image for a larger view.
