Symbolic Imagery, Functions

Symbols depicted with delicate yet sturdy lines, thickly layered paints, and symbols that seem ready to burst to life, freely roam the exhibition space, welcoming visitors. Paintings, drawings, and woodworking objects form a triangle, encircling us. Nishi's <Imagine> allows for both simplification and enrichment of the essence of the subject, providing ample space for both artwork and viewer's imagination to interact freely.


sin(ฮธ)

Nishi's artwork consists of basic shapes. The slanted lines and thickly applied colors, without shading, enhance the prominence of the edges. As a result, Nishi's symbols stand out clearly. While his figures may appear whimsical and spontaneous at first glance, a closer look reveals a variety of symbol variations based on Nishi's formula. The reason we can perceive these variations is due to his use of universally recognized symbolic signs. For instance, an arrow originating from the center of a circular shape is commonly interpreted as a "clock" (even without numbers). Nishi's sin(clock) graph revolves around these fundamental elements. Instead of expanding expression through additional elements to create symbols, he fills the canvas by making subtle alterations to basic elements, showcasing the limitless potential of expression.


cos(ฮธ)

On one side of the exhibition space lie three substantial sketchbooks, each secured with locks. They represent Nishi's distinct universe. During the COVID restrictions, he found solace and freedom in these imaginative realms. Visitors can unlock and explore these worlds themselves. Unlike paintings, Nishi's drawings are imbued with a pure and uninhibited imagination, serving as both a roadmap and an insight into the evolution of his formula. As he repeats the process of erasure and layering on the paper, the thicker it gets, his artistic formula becomes more evident. By gradually stripping elements from drawings portraying complete figures, one can follow the intriguing journey of how a single line sustains three surfaces.


tan(ฮธ)

When Nishi carves into solid wood, his paintings leap off the canvas, morphing into captivating three-dimensional sculptures. Unlike traditional flat artworks, his woodworking demands meticulous planning and detailed carving. His art pieces, like the steadfast tan graph, seem to break free from their original form, changing in shape, size, and direction without being confined by a fixed frame. By transforming two-dimensional symbols into tangible, three-dimensional pieces, he offers a fresh and intriguing perspective on their essence. Encountering a piece with a large '?' flipped 180 degrees might evoke the feeling of being behind a monitor, while the dice with the extended number pillars maintain the essence of the dice, even though they are no longer rollable.

None of Nishi's works have titles. Within <Imagine>, in the triangular exhibition space, each piece sends out different waves of imagination, intersecting with our functions. It's contradictory to describe Nishi's creations in words when he himself says, "Using words to explain my work feels like a 'compromise' to me". Within the ongoing narrative of the exhibition's only word, <Imagine>, visitors are invited to unlock the padlock and let their imaginative and witty thoughts flow freely, just like Nishi's approach.


1) A symbol is based on its similarity to the object it represents. A symbol is established as such even without an existing reference or interpreter. (Kang Mi-jeong, Semiotics and Art History with Charles Sanders Peirce, 2011, p. 159)

โ— About My Artworks โ—

My artworks don't have concepts or titles. In a sense, this means I believe in the power that artworks inherently possess.

I embed my interests, favored thoughts, and values into my paintings, so using words to supplement them feels like a "compromise" to me.

Such extreme thinking is also a fundamental part of who I am and has been a significant influence on my artwork up to now. Of course, it's an aspect of myself that should continue to evolve as a personal challenge rather than a final conclusion.
โ— About the Drawing Book โ—

In 2020, pandemic occurred due to COVID-19, and a stay-at-home order was implemented by the government.

During this restricted life, creating this drawing book became my outlet for releasing energy.

For me, this book felt like "another world" where I could feel infinite freedom.

Q: We've noticed that you not only create paintings but also woodworking pieces. What inspired you to start woodworking?

A: When I decide how to express an image, I think about whether a flat surface or a three-dimensional form would be best. In the past, I was focused on flat expressions because that was my artistic style. But now, I prioritize expressing what I want at the moment, so I use various methods and materials freely.


Q: None of your exhibition pieces have titles. Can you explain why?

A: Even simple things like stones on the road or ordinary scenery have their own good and bad points. While some objects might have names or titles, those aren't important when I judge their value. I believe that by not using words in my art, I can put all my thoughts and feelings into the work. So, I try not to add titles or explanations. Maybe someday, when I fully understand the essence of a piece without diminishing its charm, I might give it a title.


Q: We've noticed dice and clocks appearing frequently in this exhibition. Is there a reason for this?

A: There's no deep message behind it. When I look at these items as motifs, some are easy to transform into different shapes, while others are more challenging. Dice and clocks are particularly inspiring motifs that spark imagination, so they often appear in my work. Also, I pick objects and scenes that are universally recognized, thinking they will resonate with people from any culture.


Q: This is your first exhibition in Korea. What are your thoughts on it so far?

A: Since the exhibition is still ongoing, it's a bit early to talk about my experience. But the time I've spent traveling in Korea and interacting with the gallery has been fantastic and meaningful. I have a lot of personal interest and connection with Korea, so I believe this exhibition is special for me.


Q: Do you have a message for visitors of the <Imagine> exhibition?

A: As I mentioned before, I don't have a specific message I want to convey in words, but I hope you enjoy the exhibition.
