Barbara Takenaga’s work has been described as meticulous, kaleidoscopic, geometric compositions drawn freehand. A repetition of dots set in abundant colors to form various patterns with sweeping, spiraling movements. Celestial bodies in which the center often is lighter in color, creating a luminous effect.
Her work has been widely exhibited at institutions including an installation entitled Nebraska at Mass MOCA, in North Adams, MA; Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, CO; National Academy Museum, New York; Asian Arts Initiative, Philadelphia, PA; and International Print Center, New York.
Takenaga is currently represented by DC Moore Gallery in New York City.
