A brilliant and fun little paper sculpture by one of Japan’s most original contemporary artists, Akiyoshi Shimazoe. His life-enhancing works are full of witty ideas and a warm sense of humour. Nageire translates as a container to throw twisted things into and Shimazoe suggests it is interactive by starting the process.
In his works, Shimazoe says he recreates his own visual memories in a direct way, bypassing reason. People admire his unique masterpieces as they give us a message to enjoy life.
Please also see Shimazoe’s Art Clocks which are especially popular in Japan. In addition to one-off pieces, Japan Originals offers you his original three clock collection directly from him. These working clocks feature hand paint, silk, pastel, and hemp and cotton yarn detail in collaboration with textile artist Kazuko Saeki.
Nageire is, literally, a container to throw twisted things into, and in a fit of originality Shimazoe has started the process.
