橋本は、独特な金属質のテクスチャーを持った重厚感のある陶芸作品を制作し、これまで国内外で数々の展覧会に参加・作品を発表してきました。

球体を含めた巨大な幾何学形態、モノリスのような作品は、全て手捻りで土を積み上げて成形され、最終的に金属質が高い釉薬を施した後、レンガを積み上げた巨大な窯でゆっくりと焼き上げられています。無機質なフォルムでありながらも、手でつくられた造形には巨大で重厚な物体と人間の身体的との対比があり、美しい金属質の表面は光のあたる具合や長い時間の経過の中で表情を変えていきます。

本展では、四角柱の陶器作品やモルタルを組み合わせた大型作品を中心に発表いたします。ソリッドで重厚感のあるキューブは重力から放たれたのか、どこか別の場所から長い年月を飛び越してここに置かれているのか、何かの意味を持って作られた碑のような印象と同時に、素材の対比と組み合わせによって生み出される違和感と軽やかな浮遊感を持ちあせています。

幼いころ夢中だった折り紙やプラモデルに寺社仏閣。彫刻家の父が作る等身の石膏像やブロンズ像を日々目にしてきました。家の窓から見える庭の草木や、その奥に広がる山々、車窓からの移りゆくランドスケープを見ることが好きでした。こういった幼少期からの経験が制作の背景にあります。
仕事に対する姿勢として、個人的な考えや思いとの距離感を意識しながら、それでも残る作家の熱量が感じられるものを作りたいと思っています。数字では計算できない揺らぎ、ものの佇まいや存在を取り巻く環境を大切にしています。 - 橋本 知成

Hashimoto is known for his massive ceramic works with unique metallic textures, and has exhibited his works in numerous exhibitions internationally. 

The massive geometric forms, including spheres and monolithic pieces, are entirely shaped by hand-twisting layers of clay and finished with a metallic glaze before being slowly fired in an enormous brick kiln. Despite their inorganic form, the hand-crafted shapes contrast with the huge, massive objects and human physicality, and the beautiful metallic surfaces change their expressions with the passage of light and the lapse of a long period of time.

In this exhibition, the artist will present mainly large rectangular columns made of ceramic and mortar. The solid, massive cubes have the impression of monuments created with a certain meaning, as if they were released from gravity or placed here after having been transported from somewhere else over many years. The works connote a contradictory nature of weight and a light floating sensation created by the contrast and combination of materials, which leave a feeling full of questions with the viewers. 


I was obsessed with origami, plastic models, temples and shrines as a child. My father, who was a sculptor, made life-size plaster casts and bronze statues, which I saw every day. I loved looking at the plants and trees in the garden from the window of my house, the mountains stretching out behind it, and the changing landscape from the car window. Such childhood experiences are reflected in the background of my work.
Regarding my approach to work, I am conscious of the distance between my personal thoughts and feelings, and yet I want to create works in a way that allows the viewer to feel the artist’s passion that remains. I place value on the fluctuations that cannot be measured by numbers, the appearance of things, and the environment that surrounds their existence.  – Tomonari Hashimoto
