In the Colored Leaves series, Takashi uses thin vertical canvas to capture sunlight streaming down from a midday sun. The modulations of color from shades of yellow to green reflect the way leaves let light through in varying degrees, moving in the wind at the same time.
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.
