Toru Kurokawa’s Figurative Forms
The figurative work of Japanese artist Toru Kurokawa has an ethereal elegance; their almost fluid forms seem frozen in time.
Toru’s sculptures are characterized by organic lines and smooth contours, channeling the beauty of the natural world. As such, the designs are open to interpretation: sometimes with biological tendencies, other times reminiscent of seeping honeycomb or rippling coral. Through scale and precision, Toru beautifully depicts the nature of life — juxtaposing strength and power with delicacy and fragility.
