THE ART OF KEIKO HARA
Keiko Hara's art carries a certain integrity that extends in many directions and holds many points of reference. Given her considerable breadth and technical expertise, the individual works reveal a remarkable fludity. Regardless of the medium – whether painting, sculpture, collage, printmakings, or her original mixed media installations – the complex layering of her images is often possessed with a startling beauty.
The complexity of Keiko Hara's visual world goes beyond the mundane banalities of the spectacle into the very core of life itself. Her art is about the tactility of things, their reference to nature, and how we perceive, feel and understand the universe that we inhabit.
- Excerpt form Robert C. Morgan, New York City Art Critic and Curator
