Biography from Gallery Paule Anglim:
Tomas Nakada recent paintings on paper were created while at an artist residency program in New England.  Pigmented oil and acrylic media are combined with rich black asphaltum in fluid painterly compositions.  As the asphaltum does not dilute or combine with the paints, its black markings give the works a graphic strength. Earlier paintings and monotypes by the artist took inspiration and, in some cases, their subject matter from science and nature.  Muted outlines and dark sepia shapes echoed images of body fluids, skin markings and chromosomes.  The artists practice has since brought his work into a refined and purely abstract form; there is no longer a context of representation of known objects.  His confidence and experience seems to have led his images to stand apart from natural references.
