Art Description

Sculpture: Stone on Stone.

Size: 24 H x 7 W x 10 in

Oonami is a Green/Gold/Brown/ Crimson Alabaster
10"w x 7"d x 24"t On 9" x 13" black granite base

Oonami is for inside installation only

Oonami is one of the Motion Series of sculptures. It joins other sculptures that include: Embark, Hansou, Kai, Kinpaku, Mizushou, Momentum, Motion, Nami 2, Precipice, Skating, Soushi, Soushi2, Triptych, Ugokasu, Ukei, and Uzushio.

Oonami, from the front is a gentler version of the sculpture Hansou. From the back Oonami shows a different more serious side. Oonami seems determined to power right off his base and find new adventures. Oonami is closely related to Embark, Hansou, Triptych, Ugokasu, and Skating. All six deal with happy, effortless movement over a slick surface.

About the Motion Series
Movement is an unusual activity to catch in stone. Stone Sculpture is noted for being solid, rooted to the ground, and unchanging. Exploring unanticipated action is the common feature of the Motion Series. A sculpture caught in the act of falling, another sculpture caught just before it is ready to leap off its' base, another seemingly moving effortlessly across its' base. All of these are displaying that elusive stone quality - movement.
