Nagare Foundation

On the east coast of Aji, Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, there is a large studio where world-renowned sculptor, Masayuki Nagare, has been producing artwork since the late 1960s. Nagare Studio is not only the museum holding through the hundreds of sculptures, but it is also his residence. The building itself can be considered a work of art. While overlooking the Seto Inland Sea, it has a fort-like appearance that makes it stand out from the scenery.

We have established the Nagare Foundation to promote art and culture and to contribute to revitalizing the community. Through Nagare’s research and honor of creative and artistic activities, we hope to continue to preserve Nagare Studio indefinitely and to open it to the public. With your great cooperation, the Nagare Foundation received public authorization on April 7, 2009.

While devoting ourselves to the preservation and public opening of Nagare Studio, we hope to reconsider the meaning of Nagare’s existence in the world of Japanese modern sculpture. Nagare’s Samurai Spirit continue to send out the Japanese creativity to the Postwar United States. He continues to make great strides in community promotion with his sculptures, acknowledging himself as a Chiho no suketto (task force for communities).

We would sincerely hope for your continuous support and guidance in the future.

Sachiko Okada, Chief Director, Nagare Foundation

Masayuki Nagare – Wikipedia

Masayuki Nagare (February 14, 1923 – July 7, 2018) was a modernist Japanese sculptor, nicknamed “Samurai Artist” for his commitment to traditional Japanese aesthetics. He was born in 1923 in Nagasaki to Kojuro Nakagawa, the founder and president of Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. As a teenager, he received training in the martial arts of a samurai, particularly swordsmanship, and lived in several temples in Kyoto, where he observed the patterns of rocks, plants, and water created by traditional landscape artists. In 1942, he enrolled at Ritsumeikan University, where he studied Shintoism and was apprenticed to a master swordsmith. He left university in 1943 to join the Imperial Japanese Navy and did not return to complete his studies. Nagare served as a Zero Fighter pilot in the Pacific War. After the War, he traveled all over Honshu Island until the mid-1950s, witnessing the desolation of the ruined countryside, developing a thorough understanding of the Japanese landscape, and becoming interested in local crafts such as pottery. His fascination with graveyard tombstones that had survived wartime bombing led to his longtime choice of stone as his preferred medium.

Nagare’s art is strongly influenced by Shintoism, Zen Buddhism, and traditional Japanese martial arts. His principal stone-carving techniques include warehada (“cracked skin” or “broken texture”), in which the surface is left rough, with visible chisel marks, and shinogi awase (“ridges joined together”), which describes the meeting of two highly polished surfaces. Some of his works exhibit the contrast between the two techniques. His sculptures’ clean lines often follow the subtle curvature of Japanese swords.

Nagare’s works include Cloud Fortress, which survived the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center (New York City) but was destroyed in the rescue and recovery efforts, Sakimori (Frontier Guardian) installed in the Honolulu Museum of Art, Hamaritsurin Garden in Seto Ohashi Commemorative Park (Kagawa Prefecture, Japan), Receiving stored at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and Transcendence (informally called The Banker’s Heart by locals) installed in A.P. Giannini Plaza at 555 California Street (formerly the Bank of America building) in San Francisco, California. He died in July 2018 at the age of 95.
