In an exhibition called "Japan in Black and White: Ink and Clay," New York-based Joan B. Mirviss Ltd, at 39 East 78th Street, is casting a special spotlight on a compelling screen-style sculpture by Yamada Hikaru (1923-2001) titled Tôhen Mandaraand created in 1973. This work, made of glazed stoneware and wood, exemplifies the artist’s unending desire to question the perception of flat visual planes.The work also manifests Hikaru’s radical approach in the manipulation of clay.
