Artist Talk | Sachiyo Nishimura | Monday 9th May 2011

Sachiyo Nishimura is an exciting young artist whose graphic reconstructions of the urban landscapes are attracting great attention. She has been invited to show at the Royal West of England Academy Open in 2011; selected for the 2010 Magenta Foundation Annual; was winner of the 2009 DLA Piper Award and was chosen as one of the Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2008.

Drawn to the visual language of industrialisation; power lines, train tracks and telecommunication cables, Sachiyo re-purposes these elements into a new abstracted landscape. Making her work in black and white she is constantly seeking to pair down the visual elements, taking us further from the real world contained in the original photograph into a highly graphic re-interpretation.
