Pursuing the complex realm of human fragility and vulnerability, Nishiyama bridges the German Expressionist touch with the artist’s Japanese heritage. “B.D.P.C.” is composed of an amalgamation of philosophies inspired by Mishima, Dante, Sade, and Bataille; resurfacing as a visualisation of constricted chaos, inception, and liberation.
Originally painted on wood with mixed mediums, the deliberate layered knife marks slice through pigments and the wooden surface; establishing a physical and mental immersion of meta realities.
Nishiyama holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design. Her solo exhibitions include Shunga (2020) at Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong, An Exploration of Human Fragility: Love & Lust (2020) at the Tenri Cultural Institute of New York, and 脆い Moroi: An Exploration of Human Fragility (2019) at Greenpoint Gallery New York.
