Hiro Ando

2008

About the Item

2008, Edition of 8 Stainless steel polished 39 2/5 × 47 1/5 × 31 1/2 in - 100 × 120 × 80 cm The artwork is signed by the Artist , carved with edition number and date under the artwork The artwork come accompanied with a formal Certificate of Authenticity issued by the studio of the Artist and signed by the Artist serie "Metallic Feline Sonata : Legends in Stainless Steel" In the sanctum of a studio, where the air bore the aromatic signature of resin and the ambiance hummed with the rhythm of creativity, Hiro Ando embarked on a meticulous odyssey that transcended the commonplace—a revelation named "Neko Sculptural Symphony: Claws of Legends." Amidst this gallery of artistic marvels, one sculpture stood as the undisputed centerpiece—Sumocat. Summoned into existence, Sumocat's rounded form stood resolute in a dynamic sumo stance, crafted meticulously from polished stainless steel. The reflective surface, a mirror to the artist's vision, conveyed both the weightiness of tradition and the fluidity of movement. Even in its static state, Sumocat emanated the vibrant energy of a playful match within the sacred confines of a sumo ring. Ando's manipulation of polished stainless steel brought forth a sculpture that transcended the physicality of the sport, capturing the very spirit of sumo. The gleaming contours of Sumocat, frozen in a perpetual dance, seemed to echo the heartbeat of sumo tradition. The polished stainless steel, a pliable testament to Ando's skill, embraced the duality of strength and grace inherent in the art of sumo. With Sumocat, Ando achieved more than a mere representation; he transformed cold metal into a vessel of cultural significance. The sculpture stood as a testament to the artist's ability to breathe life into industrial materials, bridging the gap between tradition and contemporary artistic expression. In the silent presence of Sumocat, spectators could almost hear the hushed symphony of the sumo arena, forever encapsulated in the polished, lustrous sheen of stainless steel.
