Barbara Takenaga paints her kaleidoscopic, geometric compositions of dots and lines completely freehand in a practice both meticulous and meditative; many of her compositions begin with a single circle from which the rest then emanate in radially symmetric variations. For this reason, her works have distinct, and sometimes singular, focal points. The act of repetition is central not only to the creation of a single work, but to Takenaga’s practice in general. Her series “Langwidere” (2009), for example, comprised her 30 attempts to recreate a single composition. Most of Takenaga’s paintings are made on panel or linen with acrylic, and sometimes metallic, reflective paints.
