Baku Takahashi’s glass pieces mix familiar forms with the memory of antique sculptures. For the works exhibited during this event, the artist was inspired by pictures he has seen online and various landscapes. Each sculpture represents “something I (the artist) might have seen somewhere, yet I cannot recall the context around that thing.” Takahashi assembled his complex pieces combining colors and shapes reminiscent of children’s brick sets and block games.
Influenced by anime and video games, Takahashi loves colorful objects, revealing in this new body of works, unexpected combinations of colors and forms and giving a fresh surprise to his fans.
