The artist’s conceptual approach differs from Eastern ceramic traditions and Alabama’s historical connections, as seen in Clay Body. Masaomi Yasunaga (Mah•sa•oh•me Ya•su•nah•ga) is a third-generation student of Sodeisha (so•DAY•shah), a post-war avant-garde movement. Translating to “Crawling through Mud Association,” the style counters simple forms used in daily Japanese life. With more than 40 sculptures, the exhibition showcases his ability to push what is possible.This is Yasunaga’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States.
