TORSO: Nagato Iwasaki Gorgeous And Haunting Driftwood Sculptures

Pieces of driftwood are like nature’s nomads, traveling far from their roots and going where the streams and rivers take them like no trees ever could. These well traveled scraps of wood are shaped by their journey, twisted and gnarled until they become earthen works of art shaped by the hands of Mother Nature. Sadly, most driftwood is used to build fires or as garden fill when collected, but Japanese artist Nagato Iwasaki has found a better use for those beautiful bits of wood- he uses them as a sculptural medium. Nagato’s humanoid figures are naturally gorgeous, and realistic enough to give you a hauntingly eerie feeling of familiarity when you gaze at their faceless forms, like someone you used to know but let slip away long ago.
