Nazuki Sano

Lines and ticks


A line that hides one's fragility and inner fierceness. Facing, immersing, innocent, quiet moments born.


The charm of Nazuki Sano's prints. There is a moment when a single plate and a depth that cannot be thought of as paper are projected.

Time-lapsed things that she was attracted to and never stopped ...

Decayed walls, falling pebbles, chipped vessels, dry pieces of wood. The depth of only the passage of time, she reluctantly tries to reflect it in her work. Of course, there will be no end to that attempt. Did he realize that he was fascinated by such things?


It may not be what the artist intended, but I am surprised to find her momentary "time" in the works of the dangerous equilibrium.


Time and time.

The act of carving a line on the plate must be every moment as time goes by. The writer is selfless and keeps ticking the time inside himself.

Looking at Natsuki Sano's work, I remember that living was like that.
