"fragile" collaboration in Tokyo Aoyama. 2002

Extremely thin thrown porcelain caps stick out of three wood panels painted in acrylic, molten rubber and gold powder. The sheen yet serene red-gold reminds one of gorgeous Japanese silk fabric with the peach-like porcelain caps glowing out of the canvas. Shell-like ceramic lamps hang from the high ceilings throughout the Tokyo gallery's space illuminating a humungous 3D painting (8ft in height) situated at the very end of the space. Five sheets of aluminum painted on both sides sit at different angles in the centre of a huge wooden barrel-like frame. Heavy chunks deep green glass with light passing through the back suggests the spectacle one would encounter looking towards the sky on a sunny day from 10 feet below the ocean's surface.

The painter, Yukiko Nakamura, expresses her world through a variety of mediums which is seen in her use of the aluminum sheets instead of typical canvases. Molten rubber poured on the sheets resemble dew drops ready to fall from a leaf early in the morning. Applying golds, reds, yellows, and browns by pouring the paints from the brushes rather than brushing in the standard way allows her to create more profound combinations of colours and materials which add to the uniqueness of Yukiko's work. read more and pictures
