Yoshiki Uchida


In and Out of the Garden
May 11 – May 31, 2019
Reception: Thursday, May 16, 2019 6-8 PM

Yoshiki Uchida works in the Japanese form of kanamono, which translated, simply means hardware, and includes forty eight types of objects, such as pliers, screws, and forty six others of the like. With this hardware, Uchida constructs puzzle-like sculptures derived primarily from the animal kingdom. His work is large, looming, and grow less discernable the closer one gets, leaving the viewer with a sense of discomfort from the jarring difference of perception.

Uchida’s time roaming his fathers hardware company converged at an early age with his fascination with insects and animals. While the other children were studying hard or playing, Uchida was at the river catching insects and leeches, or studying animal encyclopedias. Through his work, he hopes the viewer will be filled with the same sense of wonder and innocence that filled him as he sat on the bank of the river opening his hand to observe his newly caught insect.
