> Yoshihiro Suda is based in Tokyo.
> He creates hyper-realistic flowers and weeds from wood.
> He sets himself the task of making each new work more lifelike than the last.
> Painstakingly carving and painting each piece,
> using traditional Japanese tools,
> he may take many days to complete a single petal or leaf.
> Suda only starts to make his works once
> he has considered the space they will be shown in.
> He chooses native plants commonly found
> in the city where his work will be exhibited.
> He situates his pieces in surprising places,
> growing unexpectedly out of pristine gallery walls
> and pushing up out of forgotten corners.
> His interventions reveal the beauty in the simple and apparently unconsidered.
> ‘Simply, I want to know how detailed I can make it,
> how real I can make it. This is an old-fashioned way of thinking,
> to make something so naturalistic that it looks like the original.
> It is not the fashion now, to observe something and make it very skilfully,
> the idea itself is very deep. To make this kind of copy,
> the technique is very important.
> There are no goals as such, just that I can make it better next time.’
