BARBARA TAKENAGA. Debra Bricker Balken. Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, 2017. Published in association with DelMonico Books, Prestel Publishing, New York. 144 pp. with 94 col. ills. 29 x 25 cm. LC 2017-941023 ISBN 9783791357003 In English.
Publisher's description: This in-depth assessment explores the work of Barbara Takenaga whose detailed, mystical paintings draw from a wide range of sources from Japanese prints to Op Art. At once conceptual and decorative, Barbara Takenaga's swirling, patterned paintings have been called "psychedelic" and "cosmic." Takenaga's approach to painting is both highly structured and disciplined. In this collection of seventy paintings, the evolution of Takenaga's celestial bodies and ecstatic compositions is traced over a 20-year period. The luminous reproductions allow readers to study her intricacies of form and color. The book includes an essay that examines Takenaga's work in relation to historic precedents and current aesthetic developments; a brief consideration of Takenaga's career by novelist Jim Shepard; and a poem by Geoffrey Young.
