Kazuki Takizawa: Catharsis Contained

Kazuki Takizawa: Catharsis Contained features the work of Los Angeles artist Kazuki Takizawa, who elucidates human emotions in the shimmering, fragile form of glass. Passion, turmoil, self-expression and mental health are driving forces behind Takizawa’s articulate approach to sculpture. Takizawa uses blown and shaped glass to shed light on the darkness that can overwhelm those who face depression, disorder and mental illness in their lives. His powerful bulbous shapes and vessels encapsulate these taboo topics and provide a personal catharsis to the artist.

This exhibition was on display at the Craft in America Center, May 20 – July 8, 2017.
