Artist:Seikichi Takara Title:Red Karma Image Size: 35" x 43" Edition: Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Medium: Serigraph on Paper About the Artist:The diverse artistic style fund in Takara's body of work may at first give the impression that the images are the result of several artists. A significant influence of the calligraphic art of Asia is evident in his sumi ink and watercolor paintings. The affinity that Takara feels toward Monet's Water Lily at the Honolulu Academy of Art inspires the artist to create dramatic, impressionistic images. Takara's response to Rothko's emotionally charged blocks of color which reverberate at the viewer is seen in the artist's enveloping, abstract images. Although these styles are based in very different philosophies, each enables the artist to express his emotional response to nature.
Nature is the artists primary stimulus. The splendor and dynamism of the oceanscapes and breathtaking beauty of the flora of Hawaii, where he has lived since his birth in 1929, are frequently depicted and always felt. Moreover, as a part of nature, man profoundly influences the artist.
The reactions experienced by Takara's collectors give the artist inspiration, purpose and direction. Impassioned viewers have described their reactions as being similar to religious experiences and as a motivational force which incites dramatic changes in how they perceive life. The emotion Takara imbues in each of his images reaches across the barrier of space, deep into the inner emotion and psyche of the viewer.
