About Yutaka Sone

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.

Japanese, b. 1965, Shizuoka, Japan, based in Los Angeles, California
