Everything is Sculpture…

Everything is sculpture… Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture. – Isamu Noguchi

Isamu Noguchi – one of the most prominent American artists and landscape architects – was born on November 17, 1904 (died in 1988).

Through his lifetime Isamu Noguchi was constantly experimenting with art forms and disciplines – he created sculptures, designed furniture, lighting , ceramics, and the whole gardens. His bold work, which was traditional and modern, set a new standard for the integration of various art and design forms.

He traveled a lot, had studios in Japan and New York. Today, the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum is devoted to the preservation, documentation, presentation, and interpretation of the work of Isamu Noguchi. It is supported by a variety of public and private funds. Definitely head to Queens to visit the Noguchi Museum. Tranquil, unexpectedly secluded, you will be surprised to find such a place in New York City.

Get inspired with Isamu Noguchi’s observations and vision. Enjoy these beautiful words of wisdom.

It is weight that gives meaning to weightlessness…

Appreciate the moment.

The essence of sculpture is for me the perception of space, the continuum of our existence.

Everything is sculpture… Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture.

When the time came for me to work with larger spaces, I conceived them as gardens, not as sites with objects but as relationships to a whole.

We are a landscape of all we have seen.
