Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi makes sculptural works that endeavor to save a solitary minute in the common word, catching profoundly pigmented nightfalls and brilliantly lit backwoods in an arrangement he’s titled Layer Drawings. To create the three-dimensional establishments, Nakanishi first photos a situation over a timeframe. He at that point mounts chose pictures from his documentation on boards of acrylic in sequential request, enabling slight variety from casing to outline.

“We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way,” says Nakaniski, “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.”
