Hisako Sekijima

I have been exploring visual and philosophical potentials of basket making. I am especially interested in a symbolical way how the movement of lines around a negative space is redefining a volume as well as embodying my thought process. Even a simple geometric form such as a cube or a sphere could be so many different types of object. It always amazes me that the materiality of vines or tree barks turns into a complex system of my idioms after being treated with my conceptualization of baskets and basketmaking.
