All works created by Tetsuji Yamashita looks like its been created by computer graphics or paintings but its created by layering small pieces of papers.
Flowers bloom on the land.
Flowers bloom on the tree.
A forest of the time accumulated since the ancient time.
The ancient breath lying at the bottom of the beautiful petals moves, nurtures and changes itself.
Even the ancient shape that humans made is just repeated and marked just like everything else on earth.
Naturally, just naturally.
Simply, just simply.
Somethingﾕs always moving in Africa. Just peacefully. But vividly.
