Kazumasa, blue man

Visit to Kazumasa Mizokami for the retreat of one of his works from the series "The Blue Men". Kazumasa creates this type of work in a sitting position with a sphere in his hand. The sphere is made by terracotta while the figure can be by terracotta or bronze. The figure is rigorously painted blue while the sphere is white.  The appearances of the figure are barely hinted at that it represents a man without time and without history so that everyone can interpret a "his man" and a "his story". The sphere represents the world, otherwise humanity with its problems, anxieties and joys. Disturbing the great De Chirico the "blue man" of Kazumasa is a metaphysical sculpture without the trappings of classicism and therefore in its essential nudity is a modern and ancient man, strong and fragile.
