Masaaki Noda

Masaaki Noda - ECCD Director Yiallouridis, Noda, Efstathiou at Dedication

Massaaki Noda is one of Japan's most prominent artists. His sculptures, in particular are superior.

Through his freindship with Hearn Society, Athens, President, Takis Efsathiou, Noda has developed a profound interest in both Hellenism, and the life and psychography of Lafcadio Hearn.

In 2004, Masaaki Noda's stainless steel sculpture Apollo's Mirror was dedicated to the European Cultural Center, which is located in Delphi, Greece.

Masaaki Noda - Noda Masaaki Postcard

ECCD Director Christodoulos Yiallouridis, Masaaki Noda and Takis Efstathiou at the Dedication

In 2009, a monument produced by Masaaki Noda and titled the Open Mind Of Lafcadio Hearn, by Takis Efstathiou was installed on the campus of the American College of Greece in Athens in October 2009. An art exhibition under the same title, featuring works from all over the world, was subsequently held in the ACG Art Gallery.

Then in 2010, the exhibition was held in the Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Museum of Matsue, Japan. Once again Masaaki Noda donated a monument, which was erected this time on the shore of Lake Shinji (the original stands at ACG Athens). This sculpture commemorated the 160th Anniversary of Lafcadio Hearn's birth. This sculpture was unveiled and dedicated on Oct. 10th, 2010.

On Sept. 10, 2010, Masaaki Noda's brilliant Spirit of Mercury sculpture was unveiled in the city of Marathon, Greece. The monument commemorates the 2500th Anniversary of the Battle of Marathon.

On the 29th March, 2102, the City is Fukuyama, Hiroshima, adjacent to the major train station and transport interchange, Masaaki Noda's The Future is Now sculpture was dedicated and unveiled. Lafcadio Hearn's grandson, Bon Koizumi spoke as a special guest at this unveiling.

A thought: wouldn't it be great if Kythera, an island so bereft of great public sculpture, might benefit from the connection between Lafcadio Hearn, Takis Efstathiou, and great sculptors of world reknown like Masaaki Noda?



The Airborne Gesture: Masaaki Noda’s Sublime
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In Masaaki Noda’s work the aerodynamic and the grand expressionist gesture converge: two of the basic principles of modernism become one, to new sublime effect. Both began their long careers at the beginning of the twentieth century, the former in the aerodynamic phase of Malevich’s Suprematism and in Delaunay’s cosmic disks, to cite two famous examples, and the later with Kandinsky’s Abstract Expressionism.

Aerodynamics deals with the movement of objects in the atmosphere – they can be streamlined so as to reduce wind drag, making from fore efficient movement – while the expressionist gesture resonated with instuinctive energy. Aerodynamics aims at greater and greater refinement, gesturalism aims at greater and greater impulsiveness. The triumph of Noda’s forms, whether in two or three dimensions, is that they seem simultaneously efficient and impulsive – outwardly swift and inwardly driven. They seem to pare pure form down to a necessary minimum, and to concentrate expressive power in a singular movement. They are at once sweeping and balanced. Most crucially, they convey a sense of cosmic movement – the dynamic of the infinite, as it was, suggestive of spiritual aspiration.

Indeed, Rising to the Firmament, 1997, a rare instance of modernist stained glass, and Perpetual Flight II Beyond Time and Space, 2000, are brilliant embodiments of the abstract sublime. To me they are the climactic works of the last decade – masterpieces conveying, with consummate skill, the experience of transcendence that is the implicit the theme of Noda’s work. It is as though Noda’s tow dimensional work was a rehearsal – a kind of limbering up – for the flight of transcendence realized with breathtaking precision, in both color and line, in these two works.

Perpetual Flight II is a particular triumph, for it ingeniously fuses centripetal and centrifugal movement, which have been longstanding concerns of Noda, as the Centripetal Evolution series, 1992 and the centrifugal Fluid series, 1996 indicate. This work, like so many others – for example, the marvelous Seeker and Interplay, both 1999 – seems like a Brancusi bird unfolded – playfully unpacked, as it were, so that it spreads through space as though in abstract flight. Like Brancusi’s birds, Noda’s vital sculptures, which have an uncanny creatureliness, are inherently abstract, suggesting that reality can be analyzed into an idea that is independent of it – the idea of movement, for example – which, nonetheless, seems to distill its essence. Noda’s work embodies the concept of movement as though it was a autonomous truth, even as it is emblematic of the movement of nature, which is invariable cosmic, however earthbound it seems.

Some of Noda’s sculptures are freestanding, and some are on pedestals. The latter have an uncanny resemblance to plant life – green color of the brass of Orbit and Momentary brief, both 1999 - reinforces the illusion. In contrast, the former have a peculiarly animal presence, and in fact seem on the prowl, surging through space in search of obstacles, to overcome. Flowage II, Riptide, and Notion, all 1999 are self-contained-indeed, self-entangled, like Gordian knots – yet move forward with irresistible force. They may look wild, but there is a purposive thrust to them. All of Nada’s works in fact involves purposive design and free flow, fused to suggest heroic determination and the timeless Tao.
