“FLOW” is a small bellows collection of watercolor drawings by painter Akane Nakajima. Nakajima won the 11th Graphic “1_WALL” Grand Prix in 2014, and has been continuously presenting her works since then. The unique form and the abstract painting with pale colors give the viewer various imaginations while praising the lightness.

In this new work, Nakajima expresses the sensation of touching a small piece of nature close at hand by using watercolor blotches. Leaves of plants bathed in strong sunlight, shadows cast on asphalt, light purple petals in the evening, and withered grass are the sources of images that are incorporated into the drawings. Nakajima’s unique sensibility emerges as she incorporates small everyday observations into her drawings. Nakajima herself colored the ribbons that bind the bellows book.
