Drawn from ASU Art Museum's permanent collection, “Look to Nature” presents the work of internationally-known artist Toshiko Takaezu. Growing up in Hawaii infused a deep sense of nature in her that never left. Takaezu worked actively in clay, fiber and bronze for more than six decades using a combination of Eastern and Western techniques and aesthetics. In the late 1950s, she developed her signature style of closed-form vessels, containers that held air and space. They conveyed a sense of tranquility from the simplicity of the forms and subtle brush decoration. Takaezu started working in bronze toward the end of her career and created a series of bells, which explore the relationship between sculpture and sound.

“Look to Nature: Toshiko Takaezu” is supported by the Windgate Charitable Foundation as part of the Windgate Contemporary Craft Initiative and Peter Russo.

An initiative presented in association with the Feminist Art Coalition (FAC).

Exhibition Date: August 20, 2020 - February 27, 2021
