Gaze into the dense forest of Kazuo Nakamura’s Evergreen. What do you see? Born in Vancouver, Nakamura later became a founding member of the Toronto-based abstract artists’ group Painters Eleven, which was active between 1953 and 1960. The repetitious strokes of blues and greens in this stylized landscape are evocative of Nakamura’s interest in the underlying patterns found in both art and nature, which would later lead to his turn towards grid paintings and use of number patterns.
