Extremely talented paper artist from Japan Chie Hitotsuyama cleverly forms textured figures of animals just like they are alive. And all these are made using a different technique using rolled strips of wet newspapers. The solid application of each newspaper piece shows to be an elegant method of forming different animal sculptures. It is a big challenge to form the wild and messy fur of snow monkeys and change the mass of measures found on the back of an iguana. For Hitotsuyama, these particulars are critical as she is focusing to build the most realistic sculptures possible.
As to Hitotsuyama, She is concerned real feel of animals more than any other thing.
And for further, “Animals that live in nature are equal to us in the sense that we live together on this planet. Sometimes they sleep. Sometimes they eat. They are living ordinary everyday lives just like us. I would like to keep insisting on reality and producing my life-sized work as much as possible in order to convey their lives.” Hitotsuyama explains.
Hitotsuyama is proudly presenting several pieces of her work as part of a residency and show at MOAH: CEDAR in Lancaster, California. And through the time January 7th 2017.
