Sone's great love and fascination for nature, combined with a wholly open approach to life and art galvanizes a highly unconventional art. Working in various media, Sone makes installations, performance art, and films; he paints; and like a traditional sculptor carves hard marble and crystal. A common thread recognisable throughout Sone's work is his willingness to take risks and experiment, which at times can make some works appear to be unfinished or in a state of flux. In this book, Sone shows several of his exquisitely carved marble pieces, a recreation of the jungle, a maquette-like architectural landscape that includes snow-capped mountains, rivers and living plants, all within the same self-contained world; some twenty crystal snowflakes and a selection of new and recent paintings.
