Hiroyuki Hamada is a great artist from Tokyo, Japan. He lives in East Hampton, New York and amazes me with his work made of rubbing resins, wax, and pigment into smoothed and sanded layers of plaster.
His work bridges the contrasting conceptions of the industrial and the organic through his minimal yet highly complex process of painting, digging and drilling.
Hamada’s palate choice balances the intricate and mathematical repetition with noninvasive earth tones, that allow the viewer to examine each piece time and time again, perhaps reaching a different end each time. And that’s exactly the hardest part of art. Therefore I love it.
