Yasuo Nomura was born in Shimane, Japan. He earned his BA in oil painting at Musashino Art University in 2004. In 2018, Nomura won a grant from the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs to stay in New York and has been based here since then. His work explores the physical and mathematical underpinnings of the natural world and our cosmos. This led him to the concept of Dimensionism it aims to update perceptions by targeting "higher dimensions''.
My work explores the physical and mathematical underpinnings of the natural world and our cosmos. Early works engaged Fibonacci sequences and mathematical ratios in the development of two-dimensional images of natural phenomena.
Born in Shimane, Japan, I earned my BA in oil painting at Musashino Art University in 2004. Since 2010, My practice has expanded into the development of conceptual projects and installations that engage the viewer as an active participant in exploring the underpinnings of perception.
I undertook a residency program at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe in Kashiwa, Japan in 2015. This residency marked a major turning point in my career. I developed a special interest in the complex workings of superstring theory, one of the primary focus areas of the Institute. This led me to my concept of Dimensionism. Since then my work has aimed to shift individuals’ perceptions by engaging higher dimensions.
