Object by Hiroyasu Tsuri

Fri 23rd November, 2018 – Sun 9th December, 2018
Backwoods Gallery
25 Easey Street, Collingwood
The versatile artist has just returned from Berlin to put on his fifth show at Backwoods.

Japanese contemporary artist Hiroyasu Tsuri, who also goes by the moniker Twoone, is known for creating works that defy categorisation.

He melds studio practice with street art, spans East and West, employs a range of media – including collage, light boxes, painting, drawing, photography and sculpture – and creates singular large-scale public murals around the world.

His new series Object, at Collingwood’s Backwoods Gallery until December 9, is comprised of sketches, photos, collages, found artefacts and materials such as canvas, timber and mirrors. It’s his fifth exhibition at the gallery, and his largest yet.

Tsuri’s goal is to interrogate objectivity and the values assigned to certain objects and not others. He asks us to consider the value systems surrounding commodities such as time, money, morality and art.
