About Takatoku Nishi : He is fascinated by the transitory yet intense beauty of the ever-changing, fleeting scenes that nature produces. He finds the atmospheric optical phenomena contained in these scenes and reconstructs them through 'materials' and 'structures'. It creates a spatial experience that we have never experienced before. He consistently faces the mystique of light, while at the same time keeping in mind the 'Atmosphere.' those drifts from the work. The Atmosphere is created by harmonising the work and the environment surrounding it. The artwork serves as a medium to bring the spectacle of nature closer to us.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I would like to reconstruct and spatialise the spectacle created by nature, which is out of our reach, so that we can feel it as a presence close to us.
