Departing the most from green hues we associate with forests, Takashi uses variations of red to convey a very specific time in fall when the entire forest comes ablaze with color. Notice the dots of brightest red coming forward like flowers in a dense forest.
Born in Arita, Japan / Works in NY
Nature and geography have something in common: their boundaries are put in place by humans and are all but made up. Takashi Harada dissolves these natural and geographical boundaries in his artwork. For Takashi, all natural things have a common and equal value. When in nature, he believes, you connect back to it one atom at a time. Born in Japan, Takashi’s international existence made him face his Japanese identity as well his identity within the natural world. His art reflects that feeling, blurring natural light and color in ethereal paintings that merge harsh divisions and avoid representation in favor of capturing feeling.
