Asia Week Exhibition 2021

The Eternal Beauty of Metal

Onishi Gallery is proud to present “The Eternal Beauty of Metal.” The exhibition’s title reflects the philosophy of Ōsumi Yukie—Japan’s first female Living National Treasure in metal art—who has written that there is “ . . . something particularly meaningful about the way that metals can substitute the permanent for the fleeting and transitory, conferring eternity on phenomena that would otherwise have a limited lifespan.” Featuring vessels made from gold, silver, platinum, copper, lead, and unique Japanese alloys, worked in techniques including casting, chiseling, hammering, and overlay, “The Eternal Beauty of Metal” will show that the makers of these contemporary masterpieces are distinct in their personal modes of expression, but united in their embrace of traditional methods. Onishi Gallery regularly features the best of contemporary Japanese metal art and represents many leading figures in the field, including nine artists designated “Living National Treasures.”
