Tomoko Sakumoto

The lines are not made​ afterwards, but are an integral part of the form.

The forms of Tomoko Sakumoto's work seem simple, just like the patterns she adds. That is an illusion: their combination creates a visual alienation. At the same time, she has taken on a technically almost impossible task. The work is constructed slice by slice, after having dedicated a lot of energy to finding solutions to the complex shape problems. This does not show in the end product, its form is pure and not artificial.
