Momentum and synthesis gives way to sudden displacement in the fluid, cascading art of Akiko Nakayama, whose ever-shifting use of water, ink, oils and magnets create blooming ecosystems of colour and texture that pulsate with life—from images that evoke the chaotic beauty of the early stages of a terraforming planet, to those that emulate the tendrils of a plant reaching towards the sun.

Style

Blooming ecosystems of colour and texture; terraforming images that merge, dissolve, and pulsate with life

More

The machine that Nakayama uses to stage her work was collaboratively designed with one of Japan’s first slide projector artists, now in his late 70s
