   Masayuki Tsubota said "Colours always all around us, not only in a material sense but also a transphenomenal one." Colours penetrate our dreams, affecting everything regardless of consciousness or unconsciousness.

   Colours vibrate; they produce sound, embody the passage of time, accumulate, and amplify together with our breath, our pulse.

   His wooden sculptures pulls our existence into one that overcomes the concepts of culture and race.
