CRAFTING A DIFFERENCE VIRTUAL VISIT ON NOW!

Asayake 1 (Morning Glow) by Kazuhito Takadoi / jaggedart Gallery

Inspired by the rich woodland surrounding his birthplace of Nagoya, Japan, Kazuhito grows and hand picks grasses, leaves and twigs from his garden, sowing each blade through the paper. As the grasses dry and mature they embark on a subtle colour shift, comparative to seasonal change.

For Kazuhito, his work is a collaboration with Nature, taking materials that Nature offers and with them he tries to convey aspects or moments of it. Nature is ephemeral and his aim in a way is to interrupt the natural process of decay. With his works, he steps in to halt that decay.

Kazuhito trained in Agriculture and Horticulture in Japan the US and in the UK, before studying Art and Garden Design in the UK.

He has shown at the Daiwa Foundation and since 2008 has been showing with jaggedart in London. His works are in important private and corporate art collections including Fidelity, Loewe and the Toshiba Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. In 2019 Kazuhito was awarded a Special Mention at the Loewe Crafts Prize.
