“Memories” are an ongoing theme in Nagaoka’s works.  He believes that through “Memories” or “Traces” we are able to affirm that we have forgotten the emotions, intuitions and instances that make up our very being.

 

The narrations constructed from our recollections temporarily vanish as our eyes are pulled into a strange world of overlapping pencil marks and ink.  Our memories, as well as the traces of forgotten memories, are animated and portrayed on the canvas in a grave reality of confusion and chaos that is confined to the parameters of the frame.
