Sculptures by Yoshimasa Tsuchiya
Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya makes the most whimsical sculptures. Wooden foals, unicorns, mermaids - soft, delicate and detailed - look almost like porcelain. These beautiful creatures warm the heart and fire the imagination.
"In Japan, most of traditional buildings and sculptures are made of wood. Wood is a material which breath. It has own age, own viability. I studied these kind of traditional techniques in a graduate school of operative dentistry of cultural assets. I receive some inspirations from an old tale, a myth, a legend and my dream. The figure of my animals is a materialization of human hope, mind and heart."
One Sketch a Day
April 2nd - April 9th
I am so bad at keeping my ‘Draw from life more’ goal. The only ones drawn from life are the socks, the pendant with the Hare on it, and my Ukelele.
For the next 4 days i’m going to draw something from life each day to try and get in to a good habit.
I turned 24 this week, which I didn’t want to do only because I can still easily pass for 16. It was a good Birthday though, I got to hold an Owl the day after which i’ve always wanted to do. He was a Tawny called Henry and my drawing doesn’t do him justice; he was the most Beautiful feathery thing
i love these sketches, i wish my sketchbook was more like this <3

No photos to post I’m afraid but I will hopefully have some to put up Thursday.
We started hanging the show today and it’s looking really good!!!! I was worried about there being too much space and not enough work – because the space is soooo big – but I don’t think there’s anything to worry about.
There’s a great selection of work – print, sculpture, illustration, painting, photography,…
