Tetsuya's favourites [more]

As a sculptor, I am enthralled by the human body - its strength, its fragility, its mysterious relationship to the ever-flowing space in which we move and breathe. The sudden opening of a child's hand, the fingers of the wind through a sweep of hair, the swirling universe of pain and beauty that surrounds a woman during birth - these are the moments that inspire me.

While experimental mediums such as paper pulp allow me the freedom to explore my passionate interest in that strange instant where the figurative and the abstract meet - where the internal world of the mind and the external world of the cosmos magically collide - bronze gives me the opportunity
to continue the ancient practice of creating monumental works out of small-scale figures and subjects.
