雕塑家保井智贵(Yasui Tomotaka)近期在东京的新作展,在东京的朋友一定要去看一下。

Yasui Tomotaka‘s life-sized sculptures of impeccably dressed women and sleek animals are subltley detailed and finely textured. Working with a combination of contemporary and traditional techniques (urushi), his pristine creations are a play on exposure and robing. Revelaing occasional slivers of ‘skin’, his female figures are otherwise encased in architecturally structured outfits. The tension between the body and its trappings is felt in the poised figures, refering to both cultural and gender norms.
