The cyclic energy that flows through everything. Sea level rise and fall caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and the earth – like a deep breath. Her vessels has a reputation for colors and shapes reminiscent of nature, but in this exhibition, “Tide,” you will strongly feel the power and serenity of Yuko Ikeda that is in her works. Her new works, which were made for this exhibition, are as powerful as the surface of the sea, the rocky puddles, the depths of the ocean at night and the coral reefs. On the other hand, the silver painting bowls she has been working on for some time now are lighter and lighter, reminding us of the calm and the deep silence of the moon. I would like to see these vessels as ” paintings” rather than as ceramics. Regardless of whether they are practical or impractical, the overlapping of glazes and textures carry the scent of wind and sea water into the space and take the viewer on a journey of imagination. From the previous exhibition “Swell” to this exhibition “Tide” . Deeper, farther away, her new expression, which depicts a silent strength, is here.
