Barbara Takenaga: Waiting in the Sky

Barbara Takenaga's new body of work continues the artist's eloquent inquiry into the emotional weight of imagined spaces and natural phenomena. Each carefully constructed composition questions the boundaries of the known by offering visual translations of the ever-changing nature of the physical world.

Through the artist's process of random background pours of paint and an ordered, labor-intensive approach, she constructs funnels, geodes, maps, and webs with her signature vocabulary of dots and splashes, outlined and traced in vivid shimmery hues of acrylic. Once fully realized, Takenaga's compositions present portals or aerial views from places hovering above earth where an elastic reality pervades and parallel worlds could be the norm rather than the exception.

Darren Waterston: New Work

Darren Waterston, Transfiguration, 2016. Oil on wood panel, 72 x 60 inches.

In his current series of intimate panel paintings Darren Waterston intermingles abstraction and precise detail, effectively merging his fascination with natural science, philosophical beliefs, and landscape. Waterston's finely wrought compositions, by turns beautiful, unsettling and spare, encourage meditation. Their sleek, skillfully composed surfaces, simultaneously ephemeral and visceral, suggest an overarching interest in the sublime and desire to provoke an intense emotional connection between viewer and canvas.
