MORITA satoshi

1978 . shiga . japan




Satoshi Morita works at the Yamanami art studio, where he spends most of his time working as a maintenance man and only spends two days a week on his art. He has decided to devote half this time to drawing, which leaves him with no more than five hours a week for his embroidery. He embroiders using scraps of yarn left over from his collages, which he collects in a paper box and randomly threads onto his needles. He embroiders in calm, fluid, and concentrated movements, guiding the needle loosely without worrying that the needle occasionally comes unthreaded or that he accidentally sews in another piece of fabric. In just a short time, he manages to create multilayered and exceptionally complicated works of art.
