Keigo Nakamaru

中村圭吾的个展「夜光下的影子」正在上海恪理画廊展出。日本艺术家中村圭吾(Keigo Nakamura)生于1984年,其作品多为袖珍尺寸,辅以古董翻新或手工制作的巴洛克风格画框,以薄层多涂的传统晕染法构筑油画表面的基础。无论是尺幅、装裱还是绘画技法均反映了极为厚重的古典倾向,流露出精致优美的风格。与此同时,他于经典静物题材中对画面元素展开创新,试图展现当代资本主义社会面貌、折射现代人的心灵图景,令人眼前一亮。

Keigo's solo exhibition “Nightlight Shadows” is currently on view at Caelis Galeria Shanghai. Born in 1984, Japanese artist Keigo Nakamura's works are mostly in small size, complemented by vintage refurbished or handmade Baroque frames, and painted in the traditional technique of Sfumato, which applies multiple thin layers to create soft, imperceptible transitions between colors and tones. The size, framing and painting technique of his works all reflect the deeply classical influence, revealing a refined and elegant style. At the same time, he changes the elements in the classic still life paintings to make innovations, trying to reflect the contemporary capitalist society and modern human’s mental landscape in an eye-catching way.
In addition, the original meaning of the ornately decorated Baroque frames in art history is mostly "divine power" or "blessing". Nakamura wraps the image with a large-volume frame, giving the work a historical charm that does not exist in industrial products, and linking it with the content of the painting through its beautiful symbolic meaning, “blessing for life”It is precisely this double linkage that brings viewers an unprecedented feeling of peaceful. Just like a warmth in cold winter, slowly falling into your heart. Welcome to Caelis Galeria to find feel the power of healing.
