HIROI Yasushi


(b. 1958)

Hiroi Yasushi is one of the new generation of bamboo artists who reinterprets traditional craft techniques to create innovative contemporary sculptural forms. This piece uses strips of bamboo that become thinner as they move outwards from the center, while the space between the strips increases, to create the form of a large spiraling nautilus shell. The technique skillfully produces variation within a regular structure, and a feeling of symmetry within a natural form.
