Dismantling MY Thoughts
Iron, Melting , Welding
Rusu Aki studied forging the metal at Tama Art University. Then she fascinated by the variety of texture of metal.
Now she creates her works mainly using iron. She approaches the material, the material iron responds, and the texture born as a result becomes the vocabulary of the artist’s language of expression. She discovered that words thought to be of the self, when recombined, can show new results. As a way of discovering these words, she uses in particular the techniques of melting and welding metal.
Iron parts with differing textures are combined and concentrated on how the form as a whole would be achieved. The harmony between parts and the whole finally appears from the dialog between iron and the self, and succeeds in achieving the powerful form.
