Takashi Tachibana was born on 12th June, 1958, in Japan. He has spent most of his life in Australia, where he has studied and worked as a medical doctor. He now endeavours to present his life's work and understanding through art and other presentations.
He uses Sumi-e ink with brushes from Japan and China, and various oriental papers including Xuan, Washi, bark or Mulberry, watercolour papers, and on occasion, canvas.
The traditional style and approach of his work reflect his Asian origin. The images, however, are from the practice of "Orientation", which he has developed.
“The various components of our reality occupy space in their
fundamental existence, as projected parts of a whole being.
We, as an identity, together with and within our reality, are
projected through the Central Nervous System, by our whole.
Though normally unseen, the 'actuality' of our proejcted
make-up may be recognised. I depict and 'label' these aspects
of our reality as I find projected, to introduce an understanding
of our relation with our whole self”, says Tachibana.
