Sculptures by Yoshimasa Tsuchiya

Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya makes the most whimsical sculptures. Wooden foals, unicorns, mermaids - soft, delicate and detailed - look almost like porcelain. These beautiful creatures warm the heart and fire the imagination. 

"In Japan, most of traditional buildings and sculptures are made of wood. Wood is a material which breath. It has own age, own viability. I studied these kind of traditional techniques in a graduate school of operative dentistry of cultural assets. I receive some inspirations from an old tale, a myth, a legend and my dream. The figure of my animals is a materialization of human hope, mind and heart."

Superhero Peanut Figurines

Created by Steve Casino

Casino spends hours getting each one just right; the painting alone can take upward of 10 hours. And he starts each project with three potential peanut canvases, because he assumes two will break.

Knight has been building a formidable art practice and reputation over the past decade in the fields of photo-media, computer manipulation and intricate rope bondage.  He is motivated by themes which explore rigidly-held constructs of reality, and the times when we momentarily lose these constraints and become one with everything.

In 2003 he won the People’s Choice Award at the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Prize, which was followed in 2004 with selection as a Finalist in the Citigroup Portrait Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW as well as his third consecutive People’s Choice Award for photographic work in the annual Leather Pride exhibition.

Knight has been selected to exhibit twice at the Australian Centre of Photography, Sydney (in 2004 and 2011), and also at the Pingyao International Photography Festival in China (2011). He was awarded a prestigious residency at the Bundanon Trust Artists program in 2007 and most recently, in 2013, he was invited to create a performative installation piece as part of the MOFO Festival at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art), Tasmania. Knight has also been invited to exhibit at The Australian Centre of Photography for a third time in 31 May to 17 August, 2014.

He has exhibited internationally at Iconoclastes – Gallery d’Art, Paris in 2008, which was his first collaboration with world-renowned Parisienne jeweller, Lorenz Baumer (Head of Fine Jewels at Louis Vuitton).
