Azumi Takeda's masterful use of etching and aquatint is matched by her sharp and intimate commentary on our modern lives. The figures in her work capture the absurdity and gruesomeness of city living in which we are surrounded by many but connected to none. Everything is, however, not bleak and hopeless in her work. There is a beautiful balance and subtle humor found throughout her compositions giving it a playful feel --the sugar to make the medicine palatable.
