Japanese sculptor Yuji Nishijima creates visually tantalizing sculptures primarily out of copper wire, which he twists and bends to create repetitive swirls that take the form of the human body.These first images are his most recent work – a collection titled Going Back to Process.

Below are images from Nishijima’s 2009 work titled Connecting the Evidence, in which the artist constructs the human form in the same way paleontologists explore life that existed before their time.

Below are images of Light and Existence, which was installed at the Metal Art Museum in Chiba.

I cam across Yuji Nishijima’s work while researching artists for my coverage on the Nakanojo Biennale.
