Notice - Forest (Autumn)

Artist
Yuken Teruya, Japanese, born Okinawa, Japan 1973
Exhibition Label
Teruya transforms paper bags into magical tableaus. He cuts the silhouette of a tree into one side, then bends the paper inward to seemingly take root, leaving the lacy holes above to evoke mottled sunlight. Teruya’s reuse of these discarded materials memorializes the trees in ingenious floating worlds and suggests a cycle of renewal.
