Nagata’s work is created upon a denial toward herself for drawing girls, which is her most focus, as objects in pictures. Through her work, she expresses her conflict state of mind – her paintings are a series of affirmations and negations, and they are tinged with contradictions.
Nagata states, “My work is a seek of painting which can be done by a person grew up in‘Nijigen (ACG – subculture) generation, and it is a refracted resistance and challenge to the history of Japanese art and contemporary art.”
