Sculptor trades knife for camera at ‘Kalopsia’

Why kill something sacred?

Instead of carving up dead wood for his work, sculptor Soichiro Shimizu instead shaped living trees into temporary installations and shot them with a camera for his first photography exhibition opening Friday at RMA Institute.

“Kalopsia” goes beyond previous work in which the Japanese expat artist used roots of “sacred” trees by embracing their living forms. 
The opening reception begins at 7pm on Friday, and the show runs through May 10.
