Work by Sophie Nakajima

The amalgamation of cultures in Australia is acknowledged in this subtle reflection of my cultural background. I invite the audience to interpret the work according to their personal experience, guided by the symbolism in the work. The Swiss landscape represents part of my heritage; the placement and size of the canvases compel the audience to view the work from right to left, reflecting the reading direction in Japanese – another part of my background.
