In scenes of forests or rooms depicted by Tomoko Nagai, many animals, children, and plants of various appearances have become motifs. Breaking the rules of space with her unique sense of spatial and dimensional property, she lays out a piece of painting, as if you are looking at a fantasy-themed stage play. A dazzling array of images are intricately overlapped, just like the richly condensed worlds in fantasy stories. When the audience views each piece of the work, they are also looking at the memories of their fantasy as they experience the sense of drama and melody the painting brings.
