Yamanashi, Japan, 1969

I carve small things, but, although small – so small that they are sometimes unnoticed – they have the potential to change the way we appreciate a space. I believe that art can change our perspective and way of thinking. It motivates us to see things we might not otherwise see.

Yoshihiro Suda conceives his work as a meeting point between him and the viewer. Thus, one of the central elements for his practice is the desire to awaken a reflection on what happens beyond a first glance. His work brings back to the present traditional ideas of beauty and craftsmanship in art and invites the viewer to look more closely at the seemingly irrelevant details of our daily life.

Suda’s studies allowed him to discover traditional Japanese art, which influenced him to develop a keen discipline and an awareness of the importance of detail. Moreover, the university helped him define himself as an artist. By the time Suda finished his studies, it was clear to him that his professional path would lead him to make art in a small scale. Influenced by the tradition of the great Japanese sculptors, Suda shows objects such as plants, elevating them to defy our preconceived ideas of what a work of art is or could be.
