Kazuhito Kawai is an artist that has been pushing the visual language of ceramics. In his new show titled Riding for a Fall, currently on view at the Sokyo Lisbon Gallery in Portugal, Kawai plays with the senses and emotions to deliver striking pieces that are not easy to forget. At first glance, the work recalls otherworldly forms, at once familiar and foreign, evoking a visceral reaction.

When I look at the work, I perceive a sense of abundance, an overflow of ideas, emotions, and forms. As a whole, the exhibition resembles a set of organic explosions both monochromatic and colorful.

Kawai has been hailed as one of the most interesting emerging artists working in clay because he has succeeded in pushing the possibilities of expression in the ceramic medium. His work is completely different from traditional ceramic work produced today.
