A sculptural concentration based on abstract representations of landscapes and natural elements in carved plaster. These works are not based on direct elements of the landscapes such as leaves. Instead they are based on the general forms and shapes of that landscape, the creatures that live there, and the feelings invoked by the landscape or element of nature.
Inspired by Japanese folklore, myths and dreams, Yoshimasa Tsuchiya carves each sculpture from wood then adds plaster and paint during the finishing process. Tsuchiya holds a Doctor of Fine Arts degree in Conservation, Classical Technique.
