Galería Elvira González is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition by the Japanese sculptor Suda Yoshihiro (Yamanashi, Japan. 1969)
Suda’s practice is characterized by his creation of sculptures in small format, which represent plants and flowers in Magnolia tree wood. This wood is also known in Japan as hoonoki. The magnolia wood, says the artist, has had a singular evolution which makes it special for his work: “The magnolia evolved into its current shape about one hundred million years ago, and essentially, it has not changed since. I like the sense of history that emanates from this wood.”
The work of the Japanese sculptor, besides being of a precise and outstanding detail, becomes alive with natural pigments and by being installed by the artist at unexpected places. In some occasions, the observer has even mistaken Suda’s work by carelessness in galleries and museums installations.
