Ugokasu from its' inception always seemed to want to be upright on his narrow foot. Ugokasu is just getting into gear to go somewhere - someplace fun. He embodies the happiness and freedom associated with freedom from care. Ugokasu is closely related to Embark, Oonami, Hansou, Skating and Triptych. All six deal with happy, effortless movement over a slick surface.
About the Motion Series
Movement is an unusual activity to catch in stone. Stone Sculpture is noted for being solid, rooted to the ground, and unchanging. Exploring unanticipated action is the common feature of the Motion Series. A sculpture caught in the act of falling, another sculpture caught just before it is ready to leap off its' base, another seemingly moving effortlessly across its' base. All of these are displaying that elusive stone quality - movement.
