Biography from LewAllen Galleries:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Japanese stone carver Kazutaka Uchida has said of his art, “I love the purity of the stone and the form waiting to emerge from it.” Like his legendary mentor, the great Isamu Noguchi, Uchida finds resonance in clear lines, subtle beauty, harmonious relationships, and the quiet power of elemental forms to evoke spiritual transcendence and a feeling of Zen-like monastic tranquility and peace. He uses basalt and andesite to create elegant, abstract forms combining smooth and rugged textures and creating crisp geometrical shapes with rough natural bases. In each, there is a profound elegance of form and deep artistic sophistication that emerges from his respect for and patience with his chosen medium. Uchida was born in 1948 in Japan and was educated there and in France where he studied sculpture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Uchida’s work is in numerous international public and private collections, including the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris and the National Museum of Modern Sculpture in Senart, France. His environmental installations can be seen in cities throughout Japan.
