RMGKazuo Nakamura: Universal PatternKazuo Nakamura was a founding member of Painters Eleven (1953-60), Ontario’s first abstract art collective. Nakamura’s fascination with science and mathematics is evident throughout his career through his use of patterns, linear perspectives, and geometric forms. From the earliest landscapes and abstractions to his later mathematical explorations, Nakamura was seeking patterns in nature.
