Ripples & Blooms: Exhibition of metal works by Shota Suzuki opens at Ippodo Gallery
Shota Suzuki, Cherry Red Leaf.


NEW YORK, NY.- Ippodo Gallery is presenting Shota Suzuki (b. 1987), in his first ever solo exhibition outside Japan this December. The works speak for themselves, just as nature does: Suzuki’s work celebrates the beauty of nature as the seasons change, thus this winter showcase will provide a window into the beauties of fall and spring, as well as a warm respite from the cold.

Shota Suzuki’s metalworks capture the essence of nature, just before the winds of change erase precious, ephemeral moments. From the seeds of a dandelion about to float away on the breeze to the faint scent of the cherry blossom just before it falls, Suzuki’s work has a breathless quality, functioning almost as a time capsule for mother nature. In these pieces, the dual delicacy and tenacity of life is revealed.

Suzuki studied botany from childhood, and the art of metalwork at university. His intensity and scholastic approach to a love of plants has resulted in an attention to detail in his pieces so realistic that they blend in with real leaves and blooms. Yet despite this careful approach, the fascination still feels effortless. In their imitation of the natural world, it is as if they encourage us all to be more natural.

Suzuki works from a studio situated amid the temples of Kyōto's Kaneichō in Higashiyama Ward, the former home of the foundries which produced temple bells. From his desk, he shapes leaves, nuts, and flowers from the metal, taking the natural world from fleeting to eternal.

At just 30 years old, Suzuki completed his metal course at the Tohoku University of Art and Design in 2010, and pursued research there in 2011. That year he received a prize in excellence for jewelry from the Itami International Contemporary Craft Exhibition. His work has been shown in group exhibitions at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum twice, at the Yamazaki Mazak Museum in Aichi, Japan, at the Shiogama Sugimura Jun Museum of Art in Miyagi, Japan, and in galleries in Seoul, Edinburgh and Munich.
