Nakazawa combines etching with stunning overlays of gold, silver, or platinum leaf, sometimes oxidised. His compositions are mainly blocks of these overlays often accompanied by Japanese classic writing. His philosophy is simply to create order and balance in a given limited space, taking a traditional theme to a modern conclusion. His inspiration comes from the highly decorative screen of Sotasu, a seventeenth century Japanese artist who used traditional Japanese style painting to illustrate an accompanying text.
