Miyuki Takenaka1976-

Takenaka was drawing Seeds Series on canvas with water color which anticipates the sprouting. Then another method of applying resin between layers of acrylic board was introduced to be mingled with the drawing. These works of Takenaka reflects light and cast its shadow on white base panel, the shadow making different impression in different moments in time along with the soft blur made by water colors, and are well received in the broader context. In 2013, she challenged a new work using film which demonstrated something invisible by giving the film colour by exposure at arbitrary lengths of time.Resin in between layers of acrylic plates reflects light and cast its shadow on white base panel. The shadows makes different impression in different moments in time along with the soft blur made by water colors.
