Nana Matsumoto is a Japanese artist currently living and working in Sagamihara.

Her artistic practice develops around the inherent identity of objects. Her body of work consists of paintings and mixed media works in which she employs a variety of materials, such as fabric, magazines, sticks, etc.

"Our daily life is inundated with various things such as billboards, cups, curtains, books, buildings and clothes. Meanings and concepts are attached to them according to their intended purposes, just as products are accompanied by operating manuals. These are some of the elements that constitute our society, while at the same time latently contain within themselves the social structure itself. In such an environment, objects exist as hints."
