Kazuhito Takadoi’s interest in shadows is an important dimension to his grass, wood and twig sculptures, “As the light changes or the point of view is moved, so the shadows will create a new perspective.” The artist has also developed the embroidery process to include pure white Japanese bookbinding threads as a material. The flexibility and rigidity of these fibers give an even greater sense of three-dimensionality to his work. Kazuhito uses a range of wood including Cedar of Lebanon, Oak, Elm, and Walnut. The titles of his works allude further to the natural world, not only to the woodlands and materials he uses but also to the weather and the cosmos. Apparently abstract, each piece has a story behind it.
