Dissolve to Evolve at Remote Gallery 2024 January
‘Dissolve to Evolve' draws inspiration from the metamorphosis of caterpillars into butterflies, symbolizing human transformation amidst the challenges of our time. Nami’s art explores emotional and intellectual evolution across life stages, a journey initiated in 2021 amid the profound impact of the pandemic.
The title signifies embracing change—letting go of the old to welcome new growth. Using Japanese and Canadian materials, she merges cultural roots, embodying an evolved self.
As a Japanese immigrant in Canada, Nami navigates cultural differences, learning to adapt and harmonize both identities. This exhibition celebrates transformation, showcasing the beauty of embracing change and finding harmony between traditions and new perspectives.
