Akio Makigawa—Water drawing no. 1

08 December 2018 to 17 February 2019

Akio Makigawa’s sculptural practice focussed on the essential life-giving elements of water, air, earth and fire. Gifted to Geelong Gallery shortly before the artist’s death in 1999, Water drawing no. 1 comprises several scroll-like drawings, metal channels filled with liquid and a single round stone that allude to the physical and spiritual properties of water.
