Nozomi Hasegawa

Bronze Artist of the 2019 Portraits call, Nozomi Hasegawa

In her series of striking shellac-on-paper compositions, artist Nozomi Hasegawa pushes the boundaries of the meaning of a portrayal by emphasizing the passage of time and the transience of the image. Building this series from the notion that the portrait is often defined as an enduring likeness of a subject or model, Nozomi breaks from the strictures of such a definition by creating portraits that are, in essence, ethereal.

Nozomi Hasegawa is the Bronze Artist of the ArtAscent Portraits call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Portraits issue.
