Hideki Nakazawa is a Japanese artist, born in 1963.
"Together with a poet and a musician, I published a manifesto titled 'Method Painting, Method Poem, Method Music (Methodicist Manifesto)' on January 1, 2000. We have been issuing an email-bulletin, 'METHOD,' ever since then. A definition appears in the manifesto as follows: 'Method painting is a colored plane, which is overlaid on method itself, prohibiting chance and improvisation. However, real colors, which cause pleasure, will sometimes be replaced scrupulously with other materials.' Yes, I am an anti-sensualist. I adopt logic as tautology. I am a reductionist as a methodicist, not as a formalist."
