Brilliance

Brilliance

1982
Sculpture, Stone
I attack the stone with violence. Is this to tame it or to awaken myself? To fulfill the potential in the stone I seek a power to cope by any means. Destruction is then the road to creation. Brilliance is the result of lucky breaks, but certainly not chance.

Quotations by Isamu Noguchi from The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1987), unless otherwise noted. The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
