Tomoya Arai Exhibition

Following last year, “AT THE CORNER” welcomes the wood carving artist, Tomoya Arai for his exhibition and sales event.

Arai is an autodidact in the handling of wood and lacquer. His creative process is full of originality and freedom. While his works such as bowls and spoons feature scars made during the carving process, each piece have a rough yet refined allure. His works are made to serve as “tools” for the everyday life and each piece is unique. During his time away from his creative process, Arai plows the field and enjoys living with what nature offers him. Please do not miss this chance to see his collection.
We look forward to your visit.

The artist is scheduled to be present at the venue on Saturday, March 23rd.

「I enjoy using my froe to carve wood. The rackety “me” disappears as a serene “me” takes over its place but once the rackety children come the rackety “me” returns, that’s when my wife comes by and remarks: it’s nice to see you guys having such a good time.」 — Tomoya Arai
