Entr’acte: The Works Of Taiga Chiba
Art Beatus Consultancy Ltd., Vancouver, BC - To Dec 7
Born in Japan, based in Vancouver and widely travelled, Taiga Chiba locates his newest work “between two Mayas,” that is, between the Hindu goddess of visions and illusions and the Maya civilization of Mesoamerica. Chiba’s recent residencies in India and Mexico have resulted in mixed-media works that employ serigraphy, ink painting, embroidery and drawing. Playful and sometimes surrealistic, his images express his observations of and experiences within distant cultures.
