Yoshitoshi Kanemaki’s recent mindbending wooden sculptures carry cerebral and haunting vibes, each evolving in tone as the viewer observes from different perspectives. The artist was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 38 and he last appeared on HiFructose.com here.
With each figure, taking many, many hours to execute, the artist offers insight into how each one is crafted on his various social media channels, a small window into the confounding results he’s able to get out of wood. “We live from day to day with contradictions that do not yield any answers and conflicting emotions and pretend to be unaware of them,” the artist has said. “I would like you to take a look into the depths of your heart.”
