Embroidered Memories

Takashi Iwasaki

Takashi Iwasaki’s small-scale embroidered works are experiments in modern abstraction created in pursuit of his own aesthetic language. In them, ebullient figures collide and marry to create a pleasing and affirming visual experience.

Born in 1983 in Japan, Takashi Iwasaki earned his BFA from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. He has exhibited throughout Japan and Canada and has had solo exhibitions in Portland, OR, Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY. In 2004, he opened Semai Gallery in Winnipeg. Meaning “narrow” in Japanese, the gallery showcases contemporary art projects in a narrow hallway thirty-eight feet long by three and a half feet wide.
