Shiro Tsujimura | Preface Axel Vervoordt

Regular price 980,00 kr

This monograph on the life and work of iconoclastic Japanese artist Shiro Tsujimura demonstrates how, in his signature self-taught manner, he has reinvented the classic ceramic art form.

Shiro Tsujimura is a vanguard contemporary ceramic artist. While his creations and techniques are deeply rooted in traditional Japanese and Korean styles, his independent streak defines his practice with a sense of freedom, playfulness, and self-confidence that results in decidedly unique works. This monograph takes readers inside his studio and home to discover his artistic practice and lifestyle. Axel Vervoordt, Alexandra Munroe, and longtime friend Hiroshi Sugimoto each contribute a highly personal essay, providing rare insight into this magnetic artist. Tsujimura himself shares his approach to ceramics, deeply linked to both his training as a monk and his fierce independence, which drove him from his spiritual practice to become an artist. Each of his creations is pure and soulful, where the passing of time and the art of imperfection play an important role.

Tsujimura has held solo exhibitions around the world, and his works have been acquired from Japan to Berlin to New York by the world’s most prestigious museums, including the Met and the British Museum.
