Aya Nakamura

Aya Nakamura’s colored pencil drawings on irregularly-shaped handmade paper reference the artist’s aural and visual memories. For Nakamura, abstraction is a type of wayfaring — of following signs and guideposts that reveal themselves along a path to arrive at an endpoint. She works in pencil, which slows down time so she can deliberate on each element while aggregating them into a larger entity. The result is a series of embedded encounters that collectively create a harmonic composition.
