Yoshiko and Shintaro Nakahara: Looking Up - Art Collector

Yoshiko and Shintaro Nakahara, ‘First Sight’, 2018. Ink and acrylic on canvas, 76.5 x 152.5cm. Courtesy: the artist and Sanderson Gallery, Newmarket.
  The collaborative work of the artists forms on the canvas, often ending in unexpected outcomes. Yoshiko starts with black line work, creating forms to compose an empty “colouring-book” composition that invites Shintaro to project his palette onto figurative forms. Shintaro intuitively responds to the existing forms with solid colour. Exploring the dynamics of their collaboration, he may not always “colour within the lines;” sometimes he ignores elements described by Yoshiko’s line-work by blocking several areas with a single colour. It is this ability to follow or disregard Yoshiko’s line work that frees Shintaro to contribute equally to the final form.
