Inspired colorist – Intense happiness of painting
NANA still paints with the spontaneity and the
instinct of a child who would have grown right in the middle of a studio where paintings,
papers, rags, wools and colors of all essences pile up. She is a painter of the
Her Art shows us an artist possessed by a
concern of the compositions. Intensity of the page layout and the multiple
materials which serve her immense imagination so well. Her paintings are
nourished and vibrating of materials, even richer in colors than abstract works,
All the inventive pallet of NANA gives
birth to a same passion, dynamic like a salsa. The artist understood an
essential thing: in order that a form has an esthetic value, it should not cause
an emotion of beauty and of sublime in us, but she should satisfy to some major
targets of the intuitive conscience.
NANA is stranger in the world of the traditional
art and is mostly close to the Art Brut. She carries out a lot of research and uses
a great variety of supports. Each form of character is emphasized, the used pallet
is jubilant and irradiates. We are really in front of a work which reaches its greater
autonomy, its most intense and most magic “modernity”!
Sensitive work, NANA lets herself taken by pure
internal emotions and puts the Woman in all her splendor. She is inspired by
the Woman who suggests to her the supreme harmony with the fabrics, the threads
and the darkness of color, which show a breakthrough to the ultimate abstraction.
The perfect mystery of the bodies and the faces will generate a long quest towards
a mystical course like “Statue of the Mother“ and “Furtive Look“. These works
produce an emotional intensity. A kind of internal accomplishment and of serenity
NANA TAMAMOTO builds while following the appeals
of inspiration, seeks stylized or colored balances, the plastic consistencies
or the decorative chains like “Personal interest “ and “Surrounded from all sides“.
Through this Art, the artist reminds us that the imagination of the painter
does not relate only to the color expression or the line characteristic, but above
all, she is an imagination of structures forming a frame for imaginary. Each painting
is firstly an arrangement of forms, a labyrinth for the look of the visitor who
owes decipher all collages learnedly applied. It is a kind of theorem of lines,
forms and colors which are superimposed.
This beautiful artist expresses her passion
through a rare technique. A slow and patient work where the fabrics play with
wool and gauze, to create poetic gardens and extraordinary dreams. By dwelling
on it, one discovers in these palpable treasures, surprising and extravagant bas
reliefs. NANA, with her multiple assemblies, reaches to make the collector to develop
a privileged relation between the vibrating idea and the object. Sometimes she
lets get away colors or she emphasizes the red or the relief: scratches, slashed
lines, cuts, breaks, bulges, sprinkle the support like as many unvoiced
comments of an unknown world.
But the figures, lively in the most extreme
meaning, are the great magic of this artist. They impose their presence and the
visitor becomes the interlocutor of a dialogue that they cause without any
violence but on the contrary with a kind of evidence: -figures charged with
humanity and going back to the deepest origins of the Art. -An universal Art,
of all the continents and all eras.
The volume of the sculpture-paintings of NANA,
we will never say it enough, reach to them blissfulness by raising the color to
such a density, that the alliance between these two dimensions challenges us.
The color does not simply decorate the surface that it covers, it is itself a
part of the sculpted figures. There is also humor; a humor which does not make
fun of nothing, a humor which comes from the joy and from the surprise which is
not tired of meeting with the eternal youth.
The bodies of the Woman are shaped by
sculptor way, as if the artist more sought to show more the movement of the expression
than the result of the creation. She seeks to reach a truth of the Art with “tricks“
of the profession and thus she finds the precious moment where all is to
invent, to restart! Creations which are not without recalling of the modern icons
in a vast theater.
This artist is a charming lady. Her painting
is happiness which carries you. She is an invitation to travel and to the life
joy. Marvelous work to discover and whose success, awards and distinctions are deserved.
