Yuko, Japanese Paper Artist, and the Waterlike Spectrum
Japanese paper artist Yuko Takada Keller’s work is very much reflective of nature and the natural world. There is a prevalent use of blue and a waterlike quality to her pieces (a flowing, stirring spectrum of blue and white.) I think my favourite piece is “Life of the Blue”; its reflection on the wall is not only fascinating but it makes me think of a ball of birds twittering and flittering around one another.
Though the miniature pieces in the gallery aren’t as mesmerizing as the larger gallery works, I’m sure they are instrumental in the learning process. You can’t just start big and expect the results Yuko has achieved with her lovely and tranquil art pieces.
