Yoshinobu Nakagawa “Light Pot”
This event has ended.
Born in Osaka in 1964, Yoshinobu Nakagawa now resides in Shiga Prefecture. Since his first one-person show in 1987, the year he graduated from Osaka University of Art, Nakagawa’s motif has consistently been the relationship between plants and human beings, namely, agriculture and cultivation, or the structure of plants. For Nakagawa, the relation between artist and art works resembles that between farmer and plants. He puts pigment on canvas, just as famers sow plant seeds in the earth. He works with materials, just as farmers cultivate the field. Nakagawa’s works are housed in many museum collections, such as the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and the Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama, as well as in many company collections such as Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., Tokyo. On this occasion, new sculptures from his representative series ‘Light Pot’ and other works such as “Root of Light” are displayed.
