ETERNAL CIRCLE

Eternal Circle, the new work created by Mr. Nakanishi, is an extension of his artistic journey, inspired by the artist’s experience in the Swiss mountains for the first chapter.

For this latest piece, Mr. Nakanishi employed his “Stripe Drawing” technique, a centuries-old Eastern approach to hand-drawing that consists of countless vertical lines drawn free-hand by the artist. Eternal Circle is composed of a 60-piece row of individual stripe drawings of horizontal lines and blank spaces. When all aligned, the individual pieces total an astounding 24 metres, one for every hour of the day. Installed in an endless loop, they create an eternal image end-to-end – a flowing representation of past, present and future in which the last drawing of the sequence meets the first and blurs beginning and end into a single, eternal whole.

PLATINUM

The drawings have been digitalised to create a film accompanied by Mr. Richter’s Platinum track composed and recorded exclusively for La Prairie, complimenting the flowing loop of stripe drawings with an emotional, soaring rhythm. This digital expression brings a layer of the future to an artpiece inspired by ancient drawing techniques, fused in the present.
