Japanese American artist Tomoaki Orikasa tells stories through egg statues, what he calls Eggtion Figures, in his latest artworks. Tomoaki’s earliest works focused on abstract concepts in jewelry design and expressive figural forms which both stayed at the vanguard of his works until he began constructing anamorphic creations around the year 2005 through his animal sculptures, Yolk Art bronze series. As Orikasa became more comfortable blurring the lines between reality and his artistic vision, he started to create studies in narrative work.
Living between spoken languages brought body language to the forefront of Tomoaki’s narrative anamorphic and eventually led to the first of the artist’s Eggtion Figures being created in early 2016. Over the year that followed Orikasa perfected the production and assembly of small parts that allow him to articulate his works into emotional fluency. The moments his sculptures capture portray simple, relevant human experiences that are commonplace.
