"Common themes in Nishiyama’s work revolve around the topic of human fragility. What makes human fragility so irresistible to Nishiyama is how fickle of an entity it is to her. The human capacity is a colossal spectrum that can greatly bend and mould anyone’s path. The idea of passion to Nishiyama; is the most electrifying sensation in the world. It is not limited to peer to peer relationships, but passion for ones ambitions, passion in love, passion in hatred, passion in anger, sadness, regret, the list goes on and on. Unwilling to create anything less than the pure production of passion from within, Nishiyama’s artworks change overtime. However, the style of a dark, abstract expressionism remains indistinguishable within her array of works." - Positive Magazine
