HuMom has been told more than once her 1st life must have been as a dog; she took that as a compliment. Today’s artist is one I have shared before, Wood Carver Misato Sano is said to carved a pack of doggy doubles. Misato creates wagnificent textured wooden sculptures of curly-haired poodles & wooftastic acrobatic pugs ingrained with different aspects of her own pawsonality. Entailing multiple breeds, expressions, & physical traits, each work is a pawrific self-pawtrait.
Misato Sano explains, “For me, using the form of dogs is the most appropriate, highest-resolution method to materialize what I think of my inner self. Materializing myself in various states is about having an honest, direct dialogue with myself. In facing myself, I would like to be passionate, free, & loving, like a dog. My works are also about myself looking at myself. In that sense, I might have been making an existence that is sometimes beside myself, a little distance in other times, watching over myself.”
Here’s what I have sniffed out today but remember to look back at my first post for more wooftastic work by Misato Sano.
Have a pawsome weekend. Remember to stay safe.
