Matsui Masayo Exhibition, Waiting for High Tide

By stone sculpture, Matsui Masayo is trying to express what is gravity which draws everything downward. In former exhibition, she made works that have flat smooth surfaces, as if they were water with surface tension. That was apparently illusional expression, but at the same time that reminded us of the effect of gravity which gives water perfect flatness instantly and on the other hand, taking lomg long time, gives stones hardness and massiveness. Then, in this exhibition, she shows us the image of a head of a buddhist statue. What is the meaning of featuring extremely symbolical shape as the object of prayer. She says she wants to express "something uncontrollable by human power". We will feel that "something" which the the gallery space is full of, as if it were another "garavity".
