Turning to art-making late into her long life, Tomie Ohtake is celebrated for her abstract paintings, prints, and sculptures, through which she explores color, texture, and form with precision and depth. She is among the leading Brazilian abstract artists, with an art institute, the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, São Paulo, founded in her honor. She began her career focusing on painting, investigating rich and varied juxtapositions of lines, shapes, and passages of color and their effects on the viewer. In the 1970s, she added sculpture to her body of work. Ranging from delicate, linear forms to large-scale public pieces, her sculptures are derived from her paintings, their shapes three-dimensional echoes of those found in her canvases. Ohtake’s output is characterized both by methodical repetition and unending experimentation with the fundamental elements—color, composition, and form—that comprise abstraction.
