  • Description
    "TWO" was showcased at the exhibition ‘CONNECTION: TSUNAGARI’ featuring work from Seiji Kuwabara that reflects how the lives are influenced by two
    different and unique cultures: Canadian and Japanese. Kuwabara is a Japanese-Canadian furniture maker (his company is called In Element Designs) and his sleek simple designs are shipped todestinations all around the world. Yet in this exhibition, Kuwabarar eturned to his first love: art. Specifically, Kuwabara was showcasing sculptures made from red cedar wood that are 1oo % local and recycled. “Actually, this cedar wood came from a friend of mine who built a log cabin and this was the left-over materials. The ecological aspect of this show is very dear to my heart. As for the cedar, I have worked with this material many times before, and for these sculptures I have used an old Japanese technique (YAKISUGI), where you scorch the wood to bring out the natural grain so that it shows its beauty.”
