A handful of years after he arrived in New York from Tokyo as a young Neo-Dada sculptor, Arakawa began producing two-dimensional works that brought together text and schematic images. With these paintings, he sought to stimulate the formation of mental images by the viewer—and for the viewer to engage both mind and eye in the act of perception. Arakawa would continue this investigation of human consciousness through diagrammatic works on paper and canvas over the following two decades.
He used a variety of materials and created works ranging from modest-sized drawings to vast paintings on multiple panels. Numerous illustrations, a new essay by Charles W. Haxthausen, and a historical text by Italo Calvino reveal an artist with a committed focus on our awareness of our bodies in the act of perceiving.

However, in this new body of work, she further explores her geometric abstractions, offering a more direct view of her technical mastery as she adheres to a single-process approach to study the possibility of endless permutations. In previous abstract works, Kusaka often ended a line or grid pattern once it became distorted by the curvature of the pot, producing fragmented, interlocking patterns that appear as overlapping drawings, contradicting the three-dimensional volume.
In these new works, however, she takes an almost topographic approach by carving, painting, and even drawing with pencil intricate lines along the surfaces of each pot, allowing the shape of each vessel to dictate the curves of the lines.
