The exhibition in the Dutzi gallery this week was very nice to the eye.
“Recapturing the Moment” is the perfect title for Shihori Nakayama individual show.
Prior to reading Nakayama’s statement I saw a re-occuring face in her drawings. The precious little dog! I was immediately drawn to choose this exhibition as the one to write about because this particular section of the gallery looked like an enlarged coloring book! How fun 🙂
It felt so much more realistic when I read that all of these pieces represent a road down memory lane for Nakayama. I must say as soon as I read the words children books in her statement, I enjoyed this that much more. Who doesn’t love children books? It is like going into a land far away from all the “bad” things in the world.
The repetitive showings of the dog and a few other animals show how greatly appreciated this dog was in Nakayama’s life and then inevitably, grew on me (the viewer)
