We will display 10 works by the Nagoya based sculptor Haguri Takeshi, focusing on his newest additions. Following his largest work 'Otokogi' "Tamashii", a 2m25cm masterpiece exhibited at Art Fair Tokyo 2023, Haguri's protege Nagasaki Miki takes his powerful wood sculptures, from the enormous to the small 28 cm pieces, and applies her intricate hand painted details.

I use wood (camphor) to make sculptures.
I value the qualities of the wood and create my works while considering the shape and size, whether it is a single block or joint block carving
