“Float” is the first artist book that summarizes drawings by painter Akane Nakajima. Nakajima won the 11th Graphic “1_WALL” Grand Prix in 2014, and has been continuously presenting her works since then. The unique form and the abstract painting with pale colors give the viewer various imaginations while praising the lightness.
Here, drawings like preparatory gymnastics drawn with watercolors are arranged in a rhythmic manner while turning the pages. The watercolor bleeding spreads and mixes as if it were floating on the water. If you look at the floating feeling of a mysteriously shaped painting that seems to have been seen somewhere and does not apply to anything, you will be able to float in the world of the work.
