Tokyo-based sculptor Yasuhiro Sakurai carves these stunning wall-mounted sculptures of mysterious women and their luscious hairstyles from cypress wood, giving them an almost golden appearance. I know painfully little about the artist and his work as there is almost nothing I can find online about him and my requests to Galleria Grafica Tokio where he is represented have gone unanswered. He attended the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music and will have work at the upcoming “One Moment” show at Chiba Citizens’ Gallery.
