JAPAN, 1976

Takei studied Japanese painting at Musashino Art University and she continued painting mostly portraits for some time after her graduation. In those days, she created works based on a constant awareness of how they would look to the viewers’ eyes. However, she began to feel increasingly awkward about this as she became awakened by the abstract representations she was creating without giving them any serious thought in her spare time between her main productions.
The themes of her works “lie somewhere deep inside human emotions that cannot be fully expressed in letters or words.” Takei, who also practices flower arrangement and tea ceremony, is committed to deepening her interior aspects in view of the Japanese traditional sense of beauty in the course of her everyday life.
