IZUMI KATO: MEXICAN WORKS IN CASA WABI
Published on the occasion of exhibition at Fundación Casa Wabi, Puerto Escondido, Mexico January 2019 - January 2020.
Izumi Kato was born in 1969 in Shimane, Japan. A graduate of the Department of Oil Painting at Musashino University in 1992, he now lives and works between Tokyo and Hong Kong. Since the late 1990s, Kato has been creating an evolving dialogue with his otherworldly yet anthropomorphized works in diverse mediums. With painting as a departure point, the artist began to incorporate wood sculptures in 2003 and soft vinyl sculptures in 2012 into his practice. Kato’s stone sculpture series which began in 2016 and the latest fabric series since 2018, depict the intimate connections between self, others and nature.
