This event has ended.
Yoriko Takabatake came to be known for her highly original works with a 2014 solo exhibition in the project space at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery. In her three years at the Graduate School of Tokyo University of the Arts, where she earned a doctorate in 2016, she focused her research activities mainly on the work of Anni Albers, while in her own work she layered thread-like paint drips so the paintings resembled textiles, and at times blew and scattered the paint before it dried, developing a style distinguished both by these unique processes and their elaborate and elegant results. In this exhibition of new paintings, Takabatake takes this style to a new level, presenting works that continue to weave thread-like paint drips while more actively embracing the forces of chance.
