takashi iwasaki: textural rainbow compositions
Takashi Iwasaki a Japanese artist who lives in Winnipeg Canada creates bold, abstract paintings, collages and embroideries. The symbolic rainbow of shapes signify emotions of both positive and negative connotations. His brilliant compositions utilize movement, color and texture to stimulate the viewer. The tedious process of sewing the embroidered pieces and their resulting tactile softness make them my favorite of his works.
