Sho Kishino

Wood Carving Sculptures Exhibition

September 22, 2017 - September 30, 2017

Sho Kishino’s wooden sculptures appear to emit emptiness, enveloping its surroundings in a still void.
From lumber found in ancient temples and shrines, to wood collected from mountains and riverbanks, Kishino makes use of materials found in nature and molded by time, and grants life to them with his chisel.
Kishino’s woodwork portrays abstracted figures such as humans, Buddhist priests, a mother and her child, as well as birds.
Listening and conversing with wood, Sho Kishino carves and creates, like a cosmic entity.
Kishino’s quiet works are gaining interest not only in Japan, but the overseas as well.
