MADARA MANJI (1988-)

Madara Manji combines various metals to create colorful patterns with a technique known as ‘Mokumegane’ (lit. wood grain metal). Different metals do not naturally mix when in a solid state, but Madara uses incredible strength to hammer the metals into each other. Finally the mixed metal is stretched and ‘shaved’ to reveal the pattern. For the artist, this process of mixing matter that naturally should not do so also represents the complex mix of feelings that a person may experience at the same time. Madara’s “Uncovered Cube” works show the impossible mixture of emotions like love and hate. On the other hand, his series of mainly blank works represent a closed soul, which does not display emotion.

1988 Born in Tokyo
