Kiyoshi NAKAGAMI - Lumière
Kiyoshi NAKAGAMI Light December 16, 2023 to January 13, 2024
Galerie Richard presents new paintings by Kiyoshi Nakagami on his solo exhibition entitled «Light” from December 16, 2023 to January 13, 2024. Galerie Richard has represented the artist since 2003. Kiyoshi Nakagami is one of Japan’s most respected artists. His recent paintings reconnect with a fine line of light, a trajectory of light that bursts into a dark space.
“As a painter, there is nothing more difficult than representing light in painting. Those who do are the greatest painters, the greatest artists.” Kiyoshi Nakagami
He was not impressed by his colleagues, with the exception of James Turrell whom he assisted during his installations in Japan. The public is invited to contemplate the arrangement and degradation of the density of light in the painting. This density varies from one work to another as well as its dispersion in dark space. The light spreads through a series of sumptuous perfect gradients. The artist’s ability to reproduce the beauty of light diffusion in a painting has no equivalent.
