Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi has been creating an ongoing series of contemplative and conceptual drawings. These are called Layer Drawings and the aim of the acrylic photos is to creatively alter perceptions and explore perspectives.
Nobuhiro uses photographs taken over an extended period of time to create his eye-catching illstallations. He uses simple environments such as forests, sunsets and other natural phenomena. Nakanishi creates a three dimensional look by printing the photos on plexiglass and each sheet is then layered in order. When the layers are on the wall, the individual photos create one single scene. The scene seems to magically surround anyone who looks at it and it can also look like it is moving back into the distance to.
These images don’t just experiment with different perspectives and space, these stereoscopic studies have a meditative characteristic to. In addition the images represent the artist’s perceptions of time and his connection to his audience.
“We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way,” he says on his website. “Time itself has no shape or boundary and cannot be fixed or grasped. When we look at the photographs in these sculptures, we attempt to fill in the gaps between the individual images. We draw from our physical experiences to fill in missing time and space, both ephemeral and vague. In this series, I attempt to depict time and space as sensations shared by both viewer and artist.”

As you can see a lot of his work is based on trees and forests
