One of the most impressive and dynamic examples of his entire artistic practice, this piece exhibits Morimoto’s interest in showing off what wood can do. Though hand-carved, the work exposes a highly exacting and nearly-mechanical approach to the mark making. In its luxuriously large form, this piece has a nearly celestial quality in different lighting, and an endless number of details and shadows to admire and enjoy.
