    • The Wood Carver

      This short film is a profile of a traditional Japanese wood carver, Motoharu Asaka. As humble as he might appear, he knows very well of the skills and patience needed to traditionally replicate artwork without compromising the original piece. Traditional Japanese artwork has long been admired by the world - 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa', 'Red Fuji', 'Mount Fuji seen through cherry blossom' - and much of the artworks' popularity is due to the mass production of them using woodblock printing methods. What was once reserved for the elite could now be bought, shared, and seen by non-elite members of Japanese 17th century society. Now in the 21st century with advanced printing technology, it's with great surprise and delight that this kind of woodblock printing culture still exists today. There's a deep respect and appreciation for this traditional woodblock printing culture in Japan and Motoharu shares his story on how he became a traditional wood carver and why he'd like the whole world to share in his passion.

                The primary motif of Japanese wood carver Takayuki Zoshi's work is derived from Buddhist traditions yet encompasses an original style. Based in Sabastopol, California, he carved his first Buddha while walking 6,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York in 1981 as part of a peace movement. His artwork is his path. 造士 貴之はカリフォルニア州セバストポル在住の木彫士だ。彼の作品のモチーフは、仏教の伝統をその基礎としている。初めての仏像を彫ったのは1981年のこと。平和運動の一環として、ロサンジェルスからニューヨークまで9000キロ以上の道のりを歩きながら、8ヶ月をかけて自分自身の仏像を彫りあげたのが、木彫士としての出発点となった。それから30年、彼の作品は仏教美術の枠を超え、独自のスタイルを築き上げている。
