Description

Kazuo Nakamura emerged in the post-1950 Canadian art milieu at a time when modernism was a hotly debated issue. Although he was associated with Painters Eleven during much of that decade, his work was seen as different, less a painterly expression than a precise introspection. From the outset, Nakamura's interests included not only compositional innovations but also issues of science in order to understand the building blocks and foundation of nature, without being a pictorial "naturalist". This exhibition and retrospective view focus on two important bodies of work: a formative period of painting from 1954 to 1964, and his exploration of number structure systems that began in the mid-1970s to the present (2001). Preface by David Aurandt. Acknowledgements and essay by Ihor Holubizky. Translation by Simone Auger and Elizabeth Schwaiger, with thanks to Mortimer Schiff.
