Masumi Nakaoka "White Gaze"
This event has ended.
This artist's 2D works are characterized by the sharp contrast between glossy white and vivid acrylic colors. The white canvas and white paint layered onto the canvas as a relief constitute a large portion of the surface onto which irregularly shaped orange, purple, dark pink and green forms are drawn. The forms evoke images of elements from nature such as enlarged flower petals, sunlight filtering through forests, clouds and water. The artist photographs scenes between her house and studio, traces the shapes that she likes, photocopies them and creates the forms that she ultimately uses. Specific shapes and texture disappear through this process, leaving only the nuance of the artist's original impressions. 10 works will be on display.
