Dai Ban

Each of Dai Ban's sculptures hints at an intriguing and mysterious story. The impact of his work derives from its combination of elegant line and emotional intensity, tempered with a subtle playfulness. A man trapped on the face of a clock challenges us to consider our relationship with time. The curving stem of a bean plant and its empty pod trace the cycle of life and the passing of the seasons. A beautifully textured chess set, made to be played with, is also a statement about the structures within society.

Born in Japan, Dai Ban studied fine art and sculpture in Tokyo at Musashino Art University. He came to the United States in 1985, and moved from New York City to the Berkshires in 1993.

He has experimented with numerous materials, from stone to steel, and recently returned to working with clay, casting his finished pieces in bronze and gypsum cement. His sculpture, which feels both modern and medieval, has been enriched by his career designing stage sets and building props and models for television and film. He often makes objects that are meant to be used, such as his paperweights in the shape of crouching crocodiles and his bookends in the form of a luxuriant reclining female and an angular, darkly suggestive male figure.
