Current and Upcoming Exhibitions:
AYA TAKASHIMA: IN PASSING
Feb. 26-March 27, 2015
Reception & Gallery Talk: Thursday, Feb. 26, 4:30-8 PM
Lycoming College Art Gallery, 25 W. Fourth Street
Aya Takashima’s recent work, In Passing, explores how one perceives one’s surroundings and re-contextualizes them into a hyper-real landscape/cityscape with motion. The sense of motion blurs the line between an immediate understanding and a gradual awareness of what is happening within the scene. The notion of how one crosses the threshold of perceptual understanding fascinates her. It is within a visual tension between selective focus and motion blur that facilitates the awareness of how well one thinks and sees the world.
Aya Takashima was born in Osaka, Japan. She completed her undergraduate study at the Osaka University of Arts in Osaka, Japan. She received her M.F.A. from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2001. Her work has been exhibited worldwide: Boston; New York; Washington, DC; Northern Virginia; Osaka, Japan; Hitachi, Japan; and Seoul, Korea. She currently lives and teaches photography in Northern Virginia.
