Yagyozo is an artist who uses various materials such as stone powder clay, resin, and fiber to create works that integrate animals and plants. His works, which are made using clay and acrylic gouache, have complex shapes, textures, and colors, and at times give a sense of vitality that surpasses that of real animals and plants.

Goatzo began making ceramics when he was a student and continued to make ceramics even after graduation. I thought of trying. Since then, I have researched the characteristics and appeal of various materials, and continue to pursue expressions unique to mixed media.

Ever since I was a student, I have been raising goats only. And the "storehouse" seems to be full of dreams. That is the origin of the name YAGIGURA. In this exhibition, 17 works, including new works by Yagyozo, who says, "As long as you keep making things, you will never be satisfied," will come together. Please feel the breath of the animals and plants that Kayogura creates with various materials.

・Artist statement

I like to make
Plants and animals living in nature are the most wonderful and attractive. That's why I'm looking for a "fascination that can only be obtained by modeling" in modeling.
