Onishi Yasuaki: Reverse of Volume

In his installation titled "Reverse of Volume RG", artist Yasuki Onishi uses the simplest materials — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float inside the Rice University Art Gallery space. Rice University art gallery's assistant curator Josh Fischer explains, "The process that he calls “casting the invisible” involves draping the plastic sheeting over stacked cardboard boxes, which are then removed to leave only their impressions. This process of “reversing” sculpture is Onishi’s meditation on the nature of the negative space, or void, left behind."
