Keiko Sadakane is returning to Santa Fe, and she is bringing with her the fruits of intense intellectual and artistic labor. The new series, Geometric Painting after Piero della Francesca, is a vividly-colored group of 8 paintings. Sadakane’s latest body of work translates the underlying geometries of Piero’s painting into the language of 21st-century abstraction.
Piero della Francesca was a 15th century Italian painter who was also known amongst his contemporaries as a gifted mathematician. He is considered to be one of the most important painters of the early Renaissance.
Gebert Contemporary is the exclusive representative of Keiko Sadakane in the US. The work of Keiko Sadakane has been exhibited at the Mies van der Rohe Haus, Berlin, The Goethe Institut, Düsseldorf, the Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo, the Japanisches Kulturinstitut, Kőln, and the Museum Baden, Solingen. Her work is included in many distinguished public and private collections around the globe. She was born in Tokyo and has resided in Düsseldorf for many years.
