A member of the celebrated group Painters Eleven, Kazuo Nakamura is most recognized for several series of paintings that defined his personal aesthetic which began in the 1950s and evolved throughout his career. While most of his closest contemporaries were creating lively abstract paintings featuring expressionist brush-strokes and bold colour, Nakamura’s approach was studied, near-monochromatic, quiet and meditative. His world view was inspired by scientific curiosity and a fascination with the patterns found in mathematical theory, patterns that become concrete and visible to those who take the time to observe them in nature. His various series include monochromatic "string" paintings, "block structure" images, a playful take on still life subjects and, in his last years, intellectually challenging compositions of lines and numbers. Lakeside, Morning is an outstanding example of Nakamura's landscape/abstractions of the 1960s. The subtle variations of light within the green and teal pigments and the enigmatic definition of hills, valleys and trees effect a rediscovery of this sublime image at each viewing.
