Through his creative work, Junsuke Inatomi has never stopped asking himself, “What is beauty?” These ceramic works are the artistic byproducts of his likely never-ending journey of discovery. He creates his works by stacking together layers of Ray of hope inside his spiritual world. Then he burns them down, and they turn to ashes and disappear. From those ashes, he creates another work, and then repeats the process. At the end of the cycle of stacking and destroying, and then rebuilding, is the final composition.
His work, once described as almost crystalline entities, innocent, pure, and ray of hope, has in recent years, with the donning of a layer of chaos, tension, and a veil of darkness, grown into a more profound expression of white. When confronted with his powerful works, which seem to slither on the ground as they ascend to the heavens, you may be able to take a peek into the abyss of “beauty” on which Junsuke Inatomi’s gaze is fixed.
