Contemplate this quiet autumn scene suffused in soft light and take a moment to breathe. How do you feel? With a career spanning over six decades, Canadian painter and printmaker Takao Tanabe is known for his still, atmospheric landscapes devoid of human presence. These landscapes, which follow his early explorations in abstraction, focus on strong horizon lines and wide-open skies. Pared-down to essential forms, Tanabe’s compositions convey a strong sense of place and invite calm reflection.
