Megumi Nagai

Inspired by Japanese fables and Edo period artists, Japanese born artist Megumi Nagai's exquisite renderings of inner fantasies reveal a passionate and humorous soul; a gentle person of enormous strength.

Megumi's statement of process is reminiscent of the great surrealists, “sometimes an unexpected interaction occurs, and a surprising relationship develops between the wood and me. So until I complete a work, I do not know what will result.” What does result, again and again, are artworks of unusual beauty and power, humorous and true.
