When Takuma Kamine first encountered the images of Buddhist guardian deities as a child, he was filled with awe and fear. As a working artist now, Kamine has crystallized those initial emotions into figures which borrow elements from Japanese animation and comics. The exhibition will feature a selection of Kamine’s sculptures including representations of the Five Great Wisdom Kings (J: Godai Myо̄о̄) and of his drawings which include the Five and add three more to round out the Eight Great Wisdom Kings (J: Hachidai Myо̄о̄) grouping.
