Keisuke Yamamoto once commented on his work, “I am very interested in the history of human creations and their creative impulses. With this in mind, I created sculptures and paintings that work in collaboration with one another.” For his works in recent years, he collected many ancient tools that have been forgotten and discarded, sensing, and pondering over the historical traces they hold, as well as the insignificance and fragility of human existence. Through the use of personification, familiar to the Japanese, on the interpretation of all things, these tools that were originally used for other purposes had been nurtured and presented into a new life with a primitive power and soul, where its historical significance had transformed and been enclosed within.
