We are pleased to announce the publication of Barbara Takenaga’s lithograph “Falling (1115)”. Takenaga’s print evokes the rich colors of the night sky, meteor showers and other astronomical events.

The American poet and writer John Yau eloquently writes of Takenaga’s work in his catalog essay for her exhibition “Waiting in the Sky” in April 2016 at DC Moore Gallery, New York:

“Takenaga uses abstract signs to construct softly glowing domains. Often the signs become illuminated forms that are carefully articulated but whose meaning we are unable to grasp – there is something unmoored about these structures. We don’t know where in space, or in what context, to place them, and we find ourselves asking: are we floating, or ascending, or falling? We are surprised, enthralled, and disturbed. At the same time, we are thrown back on ourselves, left with the question: what is that I am seeing? I find this exhilarating.”

“Falling (1115)” is a ten color lithograph printed from six aluminum plates made from mylars drawn by the artist using brushes, acrylic paint and toner washes. The edition consists of 30 numbered impressions, plus proofs, on White Rives BFK paper, 28¼ x 22¼ inches.
