DAVID HARADA at WAIKIKI PARC GALLERY
November 17, 2016 – February 3, 2017
Public Reception: Thursday, November 17, 2016 / 6-8pm
Born and raised in Mililani, Hawai‘i, David Harada received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in glass from the Department of Art + Art History, UHM, in 2016. Glass inspires him because of its transparency, refractivity, and quality to be perceived as a liquid or a solid. His current work includes sculptures made of laminated glass that are ground and highly polished.
Harada states, “Memories are stratified by thoughts and emotions. They may appear permanent but like gemstones they erode and chip away over time. Each newly exposed facet reveals a layer of hidden history, providing new perspectives on the whole.”
