Akio Takamori
Three Women, 2006
Painted cast aluminum


Drawing on memories from his childhood in Japan, Akio Takamori's Three Women is a collection of cast-aluminum sculptures depicting a girl, a young woman and mother with her baby. The figures are all about the same size, suggesting that these three people are of equal prominence in Takamori's mind's eye. Though they have come together  and stand facing one another, they aren't interacting, preferring instead to avoid each other's eyes and keeping a close watch on the space around them.
