Norman Takeuchi

Acrylic on canvas
48 x 79 in. / 122 x 200 cm

"Takeuchi’s new series offers us a calming respite from the challenges of everyday life while reflecting on the complex and rich history of Japanese Canadians on this land. Takeuchi’s Long Division asks us to move forward with hope despite the ongoing and systemic problems impacting the world. 

"The series features Takeuchi’s iconic painterly style, combining figurative imagery with flowing and fragmented abstract forms. A series of nine diptychs highlight the ongoing evolution of Takeuchi’s practice, bringing together a personal and communal past with an unformed future in the process of becoming. Displayed with an intentional seven-inch gap between each pair, the left canvas of each diptych is infused with Takeuchi’s familial memories, oftentimes memories that evoke sadness, whereas the canvas on the right features abstraction that accentuates both feelings of confusion about an uncertain identity and a spirit determined to continue moving forward."
