Rent Katsura Funakoshi: Whispering Gaze on DVD

New People Artist Series: Vol. 6: Katsura Funakoshi: Whispering Gaze

2010 Rated NR 1hr 38m

The sixth volume of the New People Artist Series introduces audiences to Japanese pop artist Katsura Funakoshi, a forward-thinking sculptor who applies his uncommon eye to a very specific medium: camphor wood. Funakoshi's sculptures of human beings are undeniably realistic, but he also injects each piece with a palpable sense of surrealism -- and, sometimes, a sense of humor. The result is both surprising and startling.
