Until January 31
The oil paintings of Nijsupa Nakaurai are derived from the impressions left by movie screens. The artist chooses the isolated, strange, or scary scenes to be her muses, and she creates aesthetically pleasing but illusive paintings based on scenes from the cinema—painting by observing the different living status, the ambiguity, and the loneliness that we are all facing in society. She modifies the scene, expands its space, and adds a mysterious and lonely feel with an oil painting technique that is realistic in style, finally becoming the illusive world of the artist. For the artist, film is the art of creating illusive images and narratives.
