Gallery: Sculptures by Chie Hitotsuyama

Gallery walrus winter2017

As a child, Chie Hitotsuyama played in her family’s paper-strip factory. Today, working in the former warehouse, she hand-rolls strings of newsprint to create lifelike sculptures. Newspaper, she says, “captures the stories of the world from a human being’s point of view.” Her sculptures contemplate other perspectives: “I wonder what these animals would say if they could speak,” she says.
