Masuda Toshiya b.1977
An icon image or a graphic representation of any object that exists in real is an indicative means to make the reality recognised even if it is not a mirror representation but merely conceptual or symbolical . The three-dimensional representation of the two -dimensional dot pictures is what Masuda tries to achieve in this double process of making the real and the virtual crisscrossing each other . The close encounter between a data he processes and the actual clay he uses as material to build up the data is what makes his work eternally fragile and at the same time everlasting. The making process is to build up and cut up the clay slab to match the paper pattern he prepares in advance. He then puts each sheet-like clay in layers piling one on top of another. The process resembles that of a primitive hand - built coiling method and extremely analogue and anachronistic. This contradicting duality reflects the way that the artist ‘s eyes cutting out a part of reality surrounding him into a virtual reality of clay.
