  • About

    Tokyo-based artist Yoshihiro Suda makes exquisite life-like wooden sculptures of flowers and weeds. Usually placed in large empty spaces, these delicate objects have a powerful presence. The void around the object is an important element of Suda's work. By placing sculptures into easily overlooked locations, the artist increases awareness of space and encourages viewers to notice things they may otherwise overlook. 'Rose', which consists of the flower and a petal, also reflects the Japanese concept of 'ma', the space that exists between things or events.
