Akane Nakajima - Float
|Publisher||Torch Press / Fumi Ishino|
'Float' is the first artist catalogue of drawings by Japanese painter Akane Nakajima. Page after page of abstract painting with pale colours and unique forms that together praise lightness. Like preparatory gymnastics, the drawings have been arranged in a rhythmic manner, using watercolours that bleed and mix as if floating on water. The work offers the viewer a feeling of floating through her mysteriously-shaped paintings, each of which elusively seem to have been seen somewhere, and yet, do not apply to anything at all. Nakajima won the 11th Graphic “1_WALL” Grand Prix in 2014, and has been continuously presenting her works since then.
