Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Hitori is a sculptor who works with a wide array of materials such as wood, marble, stainless steel and even paper. At the age of twenty, Hitori left Japan to pursue his interest in art. He travelled to the art capitals for the next twenty, learning all the ropes. In 1980, Hitori wrote a book titled “A Visual Point” (published in Kawasaki City, Japan), elucidating his point of view in art. He concerns himself with creating what most people tend to overlook, the beauty of form and space within its vanishing lines. His works encourage the viewers to turn on their extra sensory perception to discover the metaphor which engages these physical monuments beyond the limited horizon of their eyesight. Such experience is highly intellectual, with a therapeutic balance.

He travelled to the art capitals for the next twenty, learning all the ropes. In 1980, Hitori wrote a book titled “A Visual Point” (published in Kawasaki City, Japan), elucidating his point of view in art.
