Wood sculptor Yoshimasa Tsuchiya first collection of works!
This is a collection of wood sculptures with motifs of animals that exist in reality and mythology.
Tsuchiya’s works are based on the question, “What does it mean that a thing has life in it?”
Through Tsuchiya’s works, the possibility of artistic expression in the form of living creatures is questioned.
This is a collection of works that encourages us to close our eyes and “listen” to the various breaths that surround us in our daily lives.
