Flatworks Box #26 by Mitsuru Koga
"Boxes are moving sculptures…created by everyone."
-Koga, 'Warehouse' published in 2012
There is hidden beauty in a cardboard box that comes from its utilitarian aesthetic. Even though Koga’s boxes look manufactured, they are in fact created by hand with exacting precision.
The works are somewhere in between 2D and 3D, mass production and craft.
Flatworks is an exploration of the ordinary things through an extra-ordinary eye. With great skill and mysterious methods, Mitsuru Koga shows us a colorful world in which we can marvel at tools and objects with renewed appreciation. Koga gives vibrancy to these still life objects found in his atelier by making them into two dimensional forms using the objects original materials.
Each flatwork piece is signed with the artist's signature and is displayed in a wooden frame and acrylic.
Frame is 17.5'' x 14.5'' x 2''
All artwork is final sale.
