Onishi Yasuaki reconstructs "intervals" and "boundaries" such as voids and margins that are not usually noticed in everyday life using a variety of materials and creates works that question the relationship between people and nature.
Recently, he presented a work entitled "Stone and Fence," in which he inspired by the shape of a stone symbolizing the accumulation of time and traced the entire surface of shores of a river with copper foil.
During his residency in Fukuoka, he investigates the rivers and landforms of Kyushu, and is considering expanding on "Stone and Fence" to create a work that includes the relationship between people and rivers.
In addition, he plans to hold a workshop in which he use copper foil to mold organic shapes such as stones and wood, as well as objects around him.
