Australia in Kanazawa

The ‘Australian Biotope” by Nikosono exhibition has been shown at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. One of our Japanese visitors named Kouhei liked the “4WD tracks” image by Nikosono.
He thought overseas artist like Nikosono enjoy creating symmetric compositions. But when he saw Nikosono’s work, he discovered asymmetric styled images. Nikosono’s photographs look different and very artistic to Kouhei. 

The red tones depicted on this picture come from the low morning lights and the red colours of the soil. This red soil is having thin organic and organic-mineral layers overlying a yellowish-brown leached layer resting on alluvium red layer. This reddish colour is very appropriate for trees and some other plants, but this soil is not appropriate for cultivation of crops.

Kouhei’s recent passion for photography is growing rapidly, he immediately connected to the Nikosono’s Instagram feed : @nikosono
