Join Pyramid’s founder, Helen C. Frederick, in an intimate conversation with artist Tom Nakashima. Nakashima is an American-Japanese internationally renowned painter and printmaker, the great-grandson of a samurai warrior, and nephew of furniture legend George Nakashima. As in this print, “Nakashima often reaches into the past to bring clarity and resolution to complex feelings. He is a man of two worlds—both East and West—yet he constantly seeks a balance between them. And though he is not religious, his work is luminous with spiritual import.” (Giorgio Furioso, TERZO PIANO Gallery).

Nakashima made several prints at Pyramid in the late 90s. One of the prints made at Pyramid, Death of a Samauri, can be found in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s permanent collection, along with Nakashima’s large painting, Sanctuary at Western Sunset.

Nakashima's work is part of Pyramid's current exhibition, Reflecting Back to the Future, for which Frederick selected pieces by 40 artists from an archive of works made of under her leadership.
