Kenji Uranishi: So far, yet so near - Art Collector

Kenji Uranishi, Danpen (Fragments) I, 2017, slip-cast porcelain, 14×38×38cm. Courtesy of The Artist and Andrew Baker Art Dealer.

Kenji Uranishi draws upon longstanding ceramic traditions in Japanese art and culture. Since moving to Australia in 2004 he has worked predominantly with porcelain, hand-building and slip-casting translucent objects inspired by the natural and built worlds.

He says of himself and his work, “When you look at me, I'm Japanese. But I see in myself fragments of two histories, two lives, two cultures — maybe even two personalities, with two styles of communication and humour. I've spent more years of my life in Japan than I have in Australia, but it won't be long before the balance tips in the other direction."
