artist statement

Jean Nagai’s current work is a series of paintings using a meditative dot process by which the sum of many individual dots accumulate into one larger whole. Using identifiable symbols, the landscape of the pacific northwest as sources for imagery, the simple abstractions can be read in multiple ways and also examine the ideas of growth, time and war that are still present in our culture.
