TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY, Osaka
Yuuki Tsukiyama was born in 1976 in Hyogo Prefecture. He graduated with a BA in Sculpture from the Kyoto University of Art and Design. After graduating, he began a career as an artist and has been working energetically using various materials such as wood, metal, resin, and paint. Tsukiyama constantly reveals the possibilities and embodiment of each material in the process of repeatedly overlaying trial and error, continuing to work while capturing the characteristics of the chosen material.
In Tsukiyama's recent works, it is not only the material object that forms the work but also the space itself, which is exhibited and regarded as an element in its own right.
At VOLTA NY, Tsukiyama will show his artwork as an installation in which he will totally transform the booth into a cosmic space with various mediums. All the work will be acrylic paintings, created with different materials with its different advantages being brought out by the artist. Each work is a different size, different medium, different color and also different time consuming, and each is full of ideas, memories and his personal taste.
“If you feel comfortable at the booth, it is because of the texture, composition, and scale of the work.
Humans have such a sense of nature that has not been explained yet, but I think these are linked to the theorem of the universe. I would like to make this an outer space like no other, a unique experience for others to recall from my artwork. It doesn't have to be sculptures, it will be composed of all painting work but it can be a big sculpture at a distance.”
