DESCRIPTION

Gregory Lind Gallery is pleased to present a new series of works by New York-based painter Barbara Takenaga. This is the artist’s fifth solo show with the gallery. Takenaga’s drawings and paintings, including works on linen, acrylic, and panel, expand on the artist’s oeuvre of provocative cosmic topographies, which evoke and encompass ancient Tibetan mandalas, clusters of galaxies, and the vital interplay between matter and energy, order and entropy. These are works that reference everything from the elegant trompe l’oeils of Op Art, the internal logic of molecular structures, the quirks and paradoxes of mathematics, and the idiosyncratic connections between science and the space of the imagination.

Barbara Takenaga
 lives and works in New York and Williamstown, MA. Her recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition at DC Moore Gallery, New York (2011). Her group exhibitions include Vortexhibition Polyphonica, Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; and the183rd Annual Invitational Exhibition, National Academy Museum, New York. Takenaga has been featured in publications such as Art in America, Art NewsThe New York Times, and San Francisco Chronicle.
