The Ringling

“Hard Bodies: Modern day Japanese Lacquer Sculpture.” Lacquer is an all-purely natural polymer. East Asian artists have made with it given that Neolithic instances, and Western minds tend to file their work in the “traditional Asian art” folder. This touring show from the Minneapolis Institute of Art shatters that cliché. It features 16 modern Japanese artists taking part in article-modern tricks with this historic medium. You are going to see 30 lacquer sculptures – and you’ve never ever witnessed nearly anything like it. Human and animal figures melt into jet-black, abstract blobs. Lifelike snails crawl up stylized vases. A glittering, bejeweled idol depicts a sweet, cartoony bear. It’s the art of untamed creativeness. That is all you are going to see here. With no traditions in sight. Oct. 15-Jan. 21 Museum of Art, Searing Wing. 5401 Bay Shore Rd., Sarasota 359-5700 ringling.org.
