Husband and wife artists Paul and Marie Kodama set up their work -- he took the photographs and she created the sculptures -- for exhibit at the Queen Emma Gallery.



Still lifes, lively stills

Scratching the Surface" has been in the making since artists Paul and Marie Kodama took a trip to China two years ago. He shot black-and-white pictures of buildings, people, landscapes and ruins while she visited innumerable ceramic factories and studios.

The photographs from that trip are on view at the Queen Emma Gallery, but the ceramic sculptures in the show did not grow directly out of the China trip. Instead, the rustic-looking sculptures are inspired by the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi's nearly abstract still-life work.

The Kodamas' show, "Scratching the Surface," borrows its name from Paul's photograph above, of a mobile barber shop in China.
