“Cosmos / Forest” by Seiko Tachibana

Check gallery website for hours and additional info

Concluding our 2022 exhibition season, Themes+Projects gallery presents Cosmos / Forest by Seiko Tachibana. New work in the exhibition ranges in size from 18 x 15.5 inches to 29 x 123 inches.

The Cosmos / Forest exhibition continues Seiko’s fascination in the concept of a single unifying principle that governs and makes up our universe. This unifying principle is found in similarities of patterns and shapes of the natural world, which repeat in microscopic to galactic structures. Seiko’s interpretation of this concept is seen in her intaglio prints and color pencil drawings through her use of color, texture, repeated line work, spatial relationships, and scale.
