Hironori KAWABATA Japan Sculptor


Hironori Kawabata – Japan – sculptor

I AM A FIGURATIVE SCULPTOR IN JAPAN. I HAVE BEEN CREATING FOR 20 YEARS AND ONE OF MY PRIMARY INTERESTS HAS BEEN RESTORING HUMAN SCULPTURE. FIGURATIVE SCULPTURE IS THE MOST ESSENTIAL TYPE OF ART. SO CAPTURING THE EXPRESSIONS OF THE MODEL IS VERY IMPORTANT. REVIVING A SCULPTURE IS LIKE GIVING IT NEW LIFE. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO BRING THE GIFT OF NEW LIFE TO HUMAN SCULPTURE BY CAPTURING THESE EXPRESSIONS.

Hironori (Hiro) Kawabata is a figurative sculptor based in Kagoshima, Japan. He has extensive formal training, including an MFA; and he is an art educator. From this relatively quiet part of the world, from within the nondescript studio building where he works, Hiro creates supremely vivid work. The vitality that radiates from his figures flows from a style that deftly subsumes some of the great masters of both western and Japanese sculpture—easily avoiding the pitfalls of ironic appropriation or homage—while maintaining a perspective that is thoroughly contemporary.

It is passion more than anything that animates Hiro’s work. His obvious technical proficiency and ability to intertwine artistic styles from disparate eras and regions captures the eye of the beholder, but it is the work’s passion that captures all the rest. The visceral, lasting impression produced by his art may be its most distinctive feature.

Initially, Hiro composes all of his pieces from clay, then he casts them in either bronze or resin. To the latter he applies acrylic paint. He has embraced sculpture’s essential power as an art form—it’s three-dimensionality and ability to capture mass and movement—as a means for exploring human emotion, or broadly speaking, the “human condition.”

“When people are suffering, they express their pain and sometimes the deepest parts of themselves,” says Hiro. “I am especially interested in vulnerable people—what their lives are like, what they’re feeling at certain moments. At times this makes my work seem tortured, but more than anything, I try to make sculpture with strong individuality.”
