Sculpture, Stone
Carving follows the possibilities inherent to the stone. This collaboration is limited, but the other way is confrontation. What is required is a certain irrationality which a promising stone inhabits. Confrontation may lead to conquest, conquest over oneself, of course, not the stone. Art is more this than compromise: to override the inhibitions that bind.

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.
