Bold color paired with visual texture are hallmarks of Keiko Hara's work.
|About the Artist||(Born 1942, Japan) "Keiko Hara, currently Professor of Art at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, was born in Japan, where she first attended art school. Among her degrees, she holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Her prints are exhibited internationally. In 1983, Hara was granted United States permanent resident status as an artist.
Early in March 1995, Hara went to Japan with two students to work in the studio and home of master printer Tadashi Toda. (Over the past twenty years Mr. Toda has made woodblock prints with an impressive list of American artists including Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud, Helen Frankenthaler, Francesco Clemente, Chuck Close, and Alex Katz.) In this austere and inspiring setting, Keiko Hara and her students spent ten days intensely proofing and working with the master woodblock printer. The results are four distinctive abstract compositions, some with calligraphic marks, collage, and stencil." taken from AskArt.com
