Layer Drawings: gorgeous sculptures of three-dimensional landscapes formed with layered acrylic photographs by Nobuhiro Nakanishi

Imagine the passing of time as a long and transparent French bread cut in many slices, each one containing an image that sequentially represents its respective moment of the day. Well, this is probably the kind of mental exercise you’re gonna do when you see this amazing project of Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi.

In his series titled Layer Drawings, Nakanishi creates amazing installations of three-dimensional landscapes just like that, placing in chronological order photographs of natural environments taken during different times of the day and applied to translucent panels of acrylic. The result enables us to have the experience of seeing the passing of time being out from its influence.

We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way. Time itself has no shape or boundary and cannot be fixed or grasped. When we look at the photographs in these sculptures, we attempt to fill in the gaps between the individual images. We draw from our physical experiences to fill in missing time and space, both ephemeral and vague. In this series, I attempt to depict time and space as sensations shared by both viewer and artist.
