About the work
Hiroyuki Hamada
Japanese, b. 1968
Follow

Hiroyuki Hamada creates abstract freestanding and hanging sculptures. “I’m really interested in what I get by combining visible things,” he explains, “and I don’t want to make it about stories, references, symbols and such, at least not on the conscious level.” This also explains why the artist never assigns titles to his work. His pieces are simultaneously geometric and organic in form, and have finely textured surfaces made using a range of drill bits. Hamada, who began his career as a painter, begins each of his pieces by using a rough structure from wood and foam. These are shaped and smoothed before Hamada then applies a plaster shell, paint, resins, wax, and pigments. His works typically feature muted and neutral tones.
