Tetsuya Ishida – Sink (2010)

26 Dec
[ I ] Tetsuya Ishida - Sink (2010) by Cea.

Tetsuya Ishida is a Japanese artist known for his surreal imaginings of ordinary objects. Sink (2010) shows a boy’s face, similar to Ishada’s, morphed with the porcelain. He looks anxious and lonely but also immobile, unable to connect meaningfully with others. His tears fall into the sink, disconnected and forgotten. His form is functional yet the metamorphosis emotes a loss of purpose. He is both trapped and adrift, lost in a world of claustrophobic solitude, searching for identity.
