Layered Landscapes by Nobuhiro Nakanishi

 

Nobuhiro Nakanishi is an artist and photographer from Fukuoka, Japan. He received his BA in Fine Art Sculpture from Tokyo Zokei University and his MFA, also in Fine Art Sculpture, from Kyoto City University.

In an ongoing series entitled “Layer Drawings“, Nobuhiro photographs a landscape over a period of time and then mounts a selection of the images onto acrylic glass in chronological order. Nakanishi adds:

 

“We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way. Time itself has no shape or boundary and cannot be fixed or grasped. When we look at the photographs in these sculptures, we attempt to fill in the gaps between the individual images. We draw from our physical experiences to fill in missing time and space, both ephemeral and vague. In this series, I attempt to depict time and space as sensations shared by both viewer and artist.”
