Andromeda B5 62×46cm Jiro Takamatsu Silkscreen 35/98


This work features intricately interwoven white and green lines against a vibrant red and blue background.

The overall impression of the painting is one of an energetic, dynamic universe, with the lines seeming to symbolize free-flowing energy, the flow of thought or the pulse of life.

The artist's "Andromeda" series is known for its richness of color and expressiveness, and each work conveys a visual resonance and emotional movement to the viewer. This work is abstract yet highly vivid, encouraging the viewer to explore the infinite expanse of the universe and the inner world.
