Artist Decoded by Yoshino

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists. This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own mind. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside. My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic. When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”. In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art." - Yoshino

Nathaniel's paintings are like little ghost stories drawn from a childhood in Appalachia under the strict upbringing of an Apostolic Pentecostal family. His images of people compressed into claustrophobic scenes are anxious and oppressive, with tones of violence just under the surface. Layers of muted colors are scraped and agitated across the surface of otherwise photorealistic paintings, creating anxiety and mystery in the work. Together, Nathaniel's imagery and process create a tense space that is oppressive and claustrophobic.
