These Wooden Sculptures by Kunihiko Nohara Will Entrance You

Kunihiko Nohara - Spring

Japanese born sculptor Kunihiko Nohara creates lofty sculptures whose subjects seem to be floating in the sky. Using a single piece of wood only for each of his pieces, Nohara replaces clothing with clouds making his figures seem ready to take flight in a hot air balloon, creating a delicate yet hard sculpture. Kunihiko Nohara says that clouds were just right and are symbolic of his practice in that he often feels “blurry” within his own thoughts. Dealing with this space of fuzziness between thoughts and dream, he further says that his “creations are not necessarily based on fantasy, but neither are they overly grounded in reality – they’re just reflections of my experiences of the world.”
