Artists Talk
July 10th, 2011
hosted by Hannah Allen
WORK Gallery is pleased to announce a solo show by Yusuke Nishimura. Through a combination of thoughtfully elegant composition and cool observation, Nishimura creates photographs that are records and impressions of time, space, and light. In the two series shown, Tracing Paper and Shadow, Nishimura delves further into ambiguities, as his investigations of immaterial elements yield photographs with such a sense of physicality, that they feel almost more sculptural than flat, two dimensional documents.
Yusuke Nishimura currently lives and works in Brooklyn. He recently received a Nomination for the ICP Infinity Award as a Young Photographer this year and was an artist in residence with O’, Milano Italy in 2010. Yusuke received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2008 and currently has a series of photographs traveling with an exhibition called reGeneration 2.
