Yoshimasa Tsuchiya – Daydreaming Forest
From Saturday 11 June until Sunday 3 July 2022, we organized a solo exhibition by Yoshimasa Tsuchiya. It was the third time that this Japanese sculpturist showed his works in our gallery. The titel of this show: Daydreaming Forest.
The show was sold out soon. Tsuchiya’s works are in demand internationally. His sculptures are created through a rigorous process. The sculptor first makes a template which is fitted onto a block of wood. Using a saw he cuts away the excess to create the basic shape. Then the intricate process of carving and sculpting begins before the wood is sanded to smooth out the surface. Plaster and paint is then applied to finish the piece of art.
