Andromeda B1 62×46cm Jiro Takamatsu Silkscreen 35/98


This silkscreen work is characterized by a flurry of vibrant colors and dynamic intertwining lines.

Against a deep blue background, pink and green lines intertwine to create countless shapes and patterns. At first glance, these combinations of colors and lines appear chaotic, but upon closer inspection, a unique rhythm and pattern can be seen.

Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, the work appears to represent the chaos that exists within the order of the universe and the natural world.

This work stimulates the viewer's creativity through the free exploration of shape and color, allowing the viewer to sense the infinite universe and the mysteries of the natural world.
