Sculpture and Isamu Noguchi

"I like to think of gardens as sculpturing of space: a beginning and a groping to another level of sculptural experience and use: a total sculpture space experience beyond individual sculptures" Noguchi

Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are on view at Portland's Japanese Garden. 
The show is called We are the Landscape of All We Know, and runs from May 3 to July 21, 2013.
Odalisque Basalt carving  by Noguchi 1962

                        Cross Beam, Granite 1970 and Re-Entry Cone Granite 1972
There are 5 works installed outside in the gravel courtyard. A perfect setting to view the art. The rest of the 21 works are inside the pavilion. Unfortunately no photos were allowed inside.
