Testimonials

What others say?

“See You There presents over a decade of contemporary multidisciplinary artist Nishiki Sugawara-Beda’s work and practice, from her delicate and meticulous sumi, acrylic and watercolor paintings on paper and wood, to large-scale sculpture, to her process of making her own sumi ink. As the book proceeds chronologically, Sugawara-Beda’s intertwining and layered spaces expand in complexity and scale, and allow us to enter the intimate space of her mark-making before experiencing the expansive scale of her more recent installations. This reinforces the dual presence of intimacy and powerful complexity that characterizes much of Sugawara-Beda’s oeuvre. Her works compel the viewer to get close, to move before it, and to spend time with it – the small and the large, and their countless associations, are all contained within.”

"See You There is a delightful journey through artist Nishiki Sugawara-Beda's world of sumi, paper, and paint. Traversing these richly adorned pages is as much a pleasure for the senses as it is an exercise in philosophical inquiry for the mind."
