Biography

Characterized by an aesthetic of flawlessness and a painstaking attention to detail, Yutaka Sone’s oeuvre combines materials and themes that are both organic and man-made. Best known for his marble sculptures of landscapes, Sone renders the typically two-dimensional genre in a three-dimensional medium. Among his pristine renderings of imaged and actual vistas are Little Manhattan (2007-2009), a minutely detailed scale miniaturization of Manhattan’s topography, and the Light in between Trees sculptures (2010), which give material form to rays of light.
