Japanese-born Ishino has gained an international reputation for his sculptural works, developing original inlay techniques and producing works which combine contrasting materials of metal and stone. His works create a unique sense of tension between reflective and non-reflective surfaces.
“My sculpture is inspired by the scenery of Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, 10km east of Kyoto. I love the scenery here and have memories of this unique landscape from my childhood. The scenery merges into the sky. When I sketch of this place, it seems to recede into the distance from my consciousness because the sky is obviously clear. I lost my existence except the location of the latitude and the longitude”.
