Ryoichi Nakamura

For the Kama City Residency Biennale Ryoichi Nakamura will create a series of panels, documenting lost and fading memories of the people that lived in Kama City, the history of the coal mines and the city’s future hopes.

Ryoichi Nakamura’s works play with a mixture of fantasic realism and personal memory, painted on large wooden panels using special oil and polyester resin. After the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami (3-11) his work has started to focus more on the human aspect and the representation of memory. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Germany and throughout Japan.
