oh color. i crave it so badly, now in the dead of winter. and who better than to deliver a good ol' remedy of vibrant bursts of color than takashi iwasaki. like his artist's statement says so eloquently, he believes:
"life is too short to take gravely all the time. i want to delight in what i can when i can. having this as my essential philosophy, my goal of art making is to create a positive and playful atmosphere, and generate warm feelings of intimacy and substance through my work."
sing it sister, can i get an amen to that! always a fan of process, craft and color i am completely drawn to takashi's work. playful, fun and beautiful, everybody needs a good dose of his work on daily basis. takashi's got a lot going on this very moment, perhaps you can join in. he's part of all of the following group shows: isolating inspiration, at atelier gallery in vancouver, opened on the 27th w/ an opening this saturday from 2-4. tinlark gallery, in hollywood, celebrates their first anniversary w/ an ongoing show, time flies. and last but not least, oh eight, opens today at le gallery in toronto. also, if you live in the netherlands, be on the look out for an interview in textiel plus magazine in the coming months w/ takashi. go, takashi go!
