Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Saito Masamitsu

    Born in Tokyo, Uematsu Chikuyu is a graduate of Oita Prefecture Beppu Industrial Art Crafts Institute. For about fifteen years he wove flower baskets, but since 1990 he has concentrated on larger-scale sculptural works. Living in near-seclusion outside Tokyo, Uematsu is renowned both for his creativity and his perfectionism. Willard ("Bill") Clark was among his most enthusiastic patrons.
