SH GALLERY will hold “SLEEPING JIVA”, the solo exhibition of Erika Naka.
The title of this exhibition “SLEEPING JIVA” means “sleeping life”. She will incorporate contemporary symbols that we take for granted into her paintings.
“I cut out the rogos that are in my eyes right now like a diary and put them into my paintings.
New fashions, buildings, technologies, and methods of expression are born every day at a dizzying pace, but on the other side, there are things that are declining and things that are disappearing.
On the other side, there are things that are declining or disappearing.In some cases, you may notice the value of the thing after it is lost, or it may be completely forgotten.
I wonder how my works will look and change in a few decades or a few hundred years from now. ”
– Erika Naka –
Naka takes fragmented logos, natural landscapes, and familiar things of daily life and puts them into her painting space as visual elements, reconstructing shapes that make abstract meanings visible.
When I paint with a thick layer of paint on the support, there is a moment when the paint moves beyond my expectations, creating a “gap” between myself and the support, and I feel that this gap, which is not always what I want, is what fascinates me.
The thickness of the paint, the gradation of the layers, and the soft, creamy texture of the paintings not only have a strong impact on the viewer, but also arouse infinite curiosity and imagination.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the exhibition.
