On the way home: Tomoko Takagi Solo Exhibition

3 October - 7 November 2020

COHJU contemporary art is pleased to present On the way home, a solo exhibition by Kyoto-based artist, Tomoko Takagi from 3 October to 7 November 2020.

Tomoko Takagi is obsessed with weird things she found on a street and paint them with a unique style and distinctive taste of colors. The material she uses, which is a mixture of oil and alkyd resin, looks transparent and fairly vivid but gets dry quickly at the same time so she can't depict the outline of each object correctly and carefully. That's how the image looks getting far from the objects as it was supposed to be but she feels getting closer to them. For Takagi, painting is a process to understand what makes her feel 'weird' and build a relationship with them.


Please come and see her new works if you are around. For those who won't be able to visit the exhibition, we are happy to provide the images and the list of the works to be exhibited. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
