Tomohiro Shibuki, an artist who is mainly creates artworks by needle wool felting, spreading his activity at home and abroad, will be held his solo exhibition “Segment” at a space Pocke from 14th to 19th December 2016, and at Clark Gallery + SHIFT in his hometown Hokkaido from 5th to 31th January 2017.
In this exhibition, he will show his “ici” series of wool stone that he continued to make as his lifework. The gap between visual and tactile like hard and soft, heavy and light, makes the people smile, and turn our eyes towards the existence of the stone that is always around us like the air.
The stone, which is a piece of earth, exists in the big time flow that is immeasurable for us. The artwork “Segment” which is also the title of this exhibition visualized the process of the stone is weathered and become smaller. You can enjoy imagining what happened in the big time flow.
In the gallery space, a rock garden made with wool will also appear. We have a culture that used stones to express a great view of nature in Japan. Feel familiar with how to capture things in the base of Japanese spirit like likening one thing to another to love.
