Takashi is able to hint at the specific season, time of the day, and even weather, with the way he depicts light. In this way, his paintings are abstract but connect you to intimate memories or sensations. Light is not just a passive presence but blooms in different directions.
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.
