Miwa Nishimura works in paint, installation, video, and photography, on scales large and small. Her hyperreal photographs capture foliage and candy-colored flowers with a fairy-tale sense of poetry and whimsy. The same playfulness characterizes her human scenes in miniature, which seem wink at the boundaries between reality and illusion. Dolls wander through forests of flowers and teacups the size of houses. Nishimura was born in Japan and studied at the Joshibi University of Art and Design in Tokyo as well as the Barcelona University of Fine Art. She currently lives and works in Paris, France.
