BIO

日本藝術家中村萌以木頭作為媒材,創作出充滿手感、色調柔和的木雕角色,作品中也刻意保留了製作時一刻一鑿的痕跡。中村認為樹木充滿了生命力,使用木頭作為材料則彷彿延續了樹木的生命。雖然從前專攻西畫,中村的創作題材卻時常圍繞著日本的妖怪誌異、民間傳說,以及信仰中相當重要的自然崇拜等要素。她從自身的經驗出發,以創作探討現代人的「自我」以及「看不見的孤獨」。

Japanese artist Moe uses wood as a medium to create a woodcarving character with a soft touch and soft tones. In the works, she also deliberately retained the traces of each hit at the moment of production. Moe believes that trees are full of vitality, and using wood as a material seems to continue the life of the trees. Although she used to specialize in Western painting, her creative themes often revolve around Japanese monsters, folklore, and natural worship in the faith. Starting from her own experience, she explores the "self" and "invisible loneliness" of modern people through her creation.
