Hiromi Takizawa: Open Air

Hiromi Takizawa:
Open Air

April 7 – September 1, 2019

Born in a small mountain village outside Nagano, Japan and now living in Santa Ana, California, Hiromi Takizawa investigates identity and the immigrant experience through themes of distance, time, space, and longing. Takizawa’s exhibition consisted of site-specific glass and light installations and new sculptural works exploring the wonder and phenomena of nature, inspired by contrasting landscapes on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Takizawa has deftly pushed traditional notions of glassmaking to create delicate glass sculptures and immersive installations of neon lights, blown glass, and natural sunlight.

This exhibition was organized by the Orange County Museum of Art and curated by Alyssa Cordova.
