In his evocative, mixed-media sculptures and installations, Nobuhiro Nakanishi aims to bridge the gap between art and life through immersive, time-based images of nature and natural phenomena that come as close as possible to matching how we might perceive them in reality. “By capturing spatial change and the infinite flow of time, I strive to produce art that creates movement between the artwork itself and the viewer’s experience of the artwork,” he says. With his series of what he calls “layered drawings,” for example, he begins by photographing such things as sunsets, foggy forests, or a burning candle over a period of time. Nakanishi then mounts his photographs onto clear acrylic panels, out of which he forms chronological, layered installations that effectively re-create these phenomena for viewers to experience, while highlighting the process of perception itself.
