Eva Sakuma

We move in a border area between two spaces – Japanese landscape and a concrete interior or its fragment, although Eva Sakuma blurs the boundary lines between them. It is rather a combination of two spaces, not their mutual negation. This nexus creates the illusion of a third space, outwardly dreamlike, though it is in essence much more real than the spaces from which it emerges. This is precisely where a profound contemplative bond is forged between man and landscape in a given space and time. It is as if space itself were growing from within an image, expanded and permeated all of the interior to be in the end linked with the surrounding landscape as a symbol of life. The viewer’s gaze is not locked into a block of material and new possibilities open up for human perception with an intimate understanding of the beauty of the morphology of the present reliefs.
