Artist Statement

“ My passion for painting and my constant exploration of the painting process leads to the diversity in my work. Representational or abstract, I approach each body of work in the same way.  I combine my instinctive use of color, textures and negative space to convey a sense of harmony and balance.  My goal is to produce works that uplift the spirit and inspire a positive visual and emotional response in the viewer.”

An award winning artist, Nagatani’s paintings grace the collections of discerning collectors throughout the United States, Canada, Germany and Japan.
