Asuka NAKAYAMA Exhibition

Sat. January 9 - Sat. February 13, 2016

《 Living with nature》 2009 oil on canvas 176 × 232 cm
   Gallery Yamaki Fine Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of Asuka NAKAYAMA from Sat. January 9 to Sat. February 13, 2016. This is her first solo show at Gallery Yamaki Fine Art and will exhibit her recent painting works.

NAKAYAMA paints, on huge canvases, fantastical images where room interior of neatly arranged furniture and vegetated garden sceneries are integrated. Standing face-to-face with these works, viewers cannot help but imagine oneself inside the real / surreal landscape. Wanting to express ‘the relationship between nature and human itself as a mixture of coexistence and domination’, her eyes are drawn upon ‘gardens’, a space where human’s intentions and actions meet with nature, although mutually penetrating one another yet live in coexistence. NAKAYAMA’s works which unify interior rooms and gardens, shed light on the human passing between home-garden-nature symbolically, by elaborate human absence.

Asuka NAKAYAMA, was born in 1986, Hyogo, Japan. Since graduating Kyoto City University of Arts, Graduate School of Arts, Master's Course in Painting, she lives and works in Hyogo. Last year in 2015, she was invited to present a solo show in a museum for the first time in Okanoyama Museum of Art Nishiwaki, Hyogo and is an upcoming artist whose development is further looked forward to. Please enjoy Asuka NAKAYAMA's works on this opportunity.
