Ken Noguchi


Ken Noguchi was born in 1982 in Osaka Prefecture and graduated from Kanazawa College of Art in 2008.

The specificity of his work is to incorporate cotton strings into the lacquer.

A worthy heir to the ancestral techniques of urushi, Ken Noguchi winds his ropes on molds then applies the sap of the laker, layer after layer.

Straight out of a land of plenty, its smooth, black-on-black sculptures spring forth like marvelous mountains.

The perfection of these landscapes, all in the roundness of lacquer, arouse the voluptuous but forbidden desire of touch.
