Chelsea, NY, February 20, 2009 --( Agora Gallery is proud to present Toshiko Nishikawa in Matrix of the Mind: Fine Art by Japanese Artists.

About Toshiko Nishikawa:

Toshiko Nishikawa’s mixed media works adeptly capture timelessness. Using acrylic boxes and canvas, she gives her work a translucent dimensionality. Different layers of material interact with each other and the shadows and shapes in the acrylic boxes change from every vantage point, creating an ephemeral opus of light and color. The ever-present motion in Nishikawa’s work is quiet and calm, never frenetic. Her work explores unification, inviting viewers to intimately interact with the various languages of perception. In order to truly understand the intricate, sensorial conversation Nishikawa presents, viewers must open up their senses to the movement, emotiveness and evanescence conveyed in the work.

Ultimately, Nishikawa’s art reflects the journey humans embark on daily: the journey to understand our introspective, immaterial selves in relationship to the material world. As an artist, Nishikawa acts as a medium through which life’s metaphysical experiences are crystallized in physical form. Toshiko Nishikawa currently lives and works in Tribeca, New York. Her works have been exhibited internationally.
