Arata Fuchi, ‘Hommage 1’, 2016, Mobilia Gallery

“Nature is the most original force in the world; it is absolute existence. Nature formed the earth, allowing the birth of all life from human beings with advanced intelligence to the tiniest single-celled organism. The artificial cannot truly be alive, but the creation of my jewelry is like the operation of a mysterious power. Although jewelry uses only inorganic material, because it is inspired by organic life, it too grows and changes. It is in the making of one beautiful shape that small points accumulate and connect to become lines, which in turn become facets, and finally emerge as a whole, full of vital energies.”
