OHGITA KATSUYA Shape of Light
Shape of Light
This is a solo exhibition of Ohgita Katsuya, an artist who creates works filled with soft light mainly using glass as the material. After graduating from Kanazawa College of Art with a major in metal casting, he studied the production of works using glass at Tokyo Glass Art Institute. From the latter half of the 1980s, he started using the cold casting method to fill the mold with glass, heat, melt, cool and solidify it, working to produce works that make us aware of the existence of light in a simple form. Looking at what he discovers in the scenery surrounding him such as houses, mountains, the earth, rain, the sea and the stars and his everyday experiences, he produces works which reflect the artist’s gentle gaze toward modest daily life led in the course of natural order. This exhibition introduces his works from the beginning to the present to showcase the world of Ohgita’s works with their peaceful and warm presence.
