Don’t miss Maria Murayama’s breathtaking catalog from Sokyo gallery with an essay by Keisuke Mori… “Even though the animals were modeled after stuffed versions, their forms seem strangely alive. This is evident in the mouse captured in the act of eating and the rabbit depicted in a hopping movement. Another motif, unique from those discussed so far, is a combination that is seen in “Stuffed animals.” This combination motif shows animals that have had arrows or nails stabbed into them, and these pieces take on a fluid form when a liquid that suggests blood leaks out from the interior to the surface.” Members can click the cover to view the catalog!
