In conjunction with Studio Sawada’s latest instillation piece at the Park Hyatt in MidTown, Kanae Maeda has brought Hirotoshi Sawada’s ethereal hanging sculptures to the Picture Farm Gallery for the month of September. Private viewings are available, and the gallery will be operating weekend hours. Please contact Kanae at State of Wonder.

“Thaw is an installation by Japanese artist duo Studio Sawada curated by Kanae Maeda. Their first exhibition in United States. The artists continue their exploration of the phenomenological effect created through the accumulation of ice. Made with special processed clear acrylic, each piece is uniquely constructed by free hand. The audience can experience the luster of reflection and shadow within the beauty of the work itself.

A critical feature of their practice is their ability to transform huge quantities of materials into sculptural installations that suggest the wonders of nature.”
