Mitsuru Koga is an artist who emulates nature. Working with leaves, rocks, and driftwood, he adapts his methods for each medium. DriftWood (2007) brought Koga back to the beach, where he imagined the excavation of fossils from an imaginary time—a prehistoric era when the earth was ruled by the imagined Branchasaurus, Stormasaurus, and Driftwood dinosaur. “I wish to create an intermediate bridge between nature and human beings,” the artist explains. Sea Stone (2008) is a collection of tiny vases, carved and polished from collected pebbles. The artist found inspiration on a beach in Chigasaki, Japan, where he was born. “As the way the waves abrade stones, I scrape them with careful attention.” (source).
