By applying the traditional decorative techniques of wood inlay to sculpture, Toru Fukuda has created a new genre of free-standing wood inlays. To take advantage of the wood’s natural hue and texture, Fukuda uses only unpainted wood culled from naturally growing trees, combining deep insight into nature with sensitive artistry to create works that not only capture the attention but simultaneously convey the vitality and ephemeral nature of living things, filling us with respect for life itself. This will be Fukuda’s first solo exhibition with Seizan Gallery.
