Artists of Hawaii, 2017

David and I drove to the Honolulu Museum of Art today to view the Artists of Hawaii 2017 exhibit.  Four local artists were featured.  These are photos of some of their work.

Kaori Ukaji, “Serenely Proliferative, 2017”:  Mixed media art, using clippings of her own skin, yarn, and rolls of tissue paper dyed with red pigment:

Kaili Chun and Hongtao Zhou, “Net-Work, 2017”:  Collaborating artists used fishnets.  Viewers are invited to walk through these nets for an interactive experience:

    I wish we had a museum in our tiny town here in Washington state they are up in the seattle area a long drive from our tiny home. The lunch or dinner looked especially yummy! Aloha in paradise you live better than most people here where winter is still hanging on, we have lived here 39 years and coldest, wettest and iciest winter we could ever imagine, we go to the eastern part of Washington for some sunshine and to the ocean to enjoy ourselves with childhood friends, it is cold but warm with their love and affection..aloha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It always a treat to view art. I appreciate a glimpse into creative minds. In truth, I like the art you have shown hanging on your walls better though.

    I didn’t go to the exhibit but it looked “interesting.” That is what I have learned to say if I don’t really like or understand something, lol.

    I love to lunch at the Honolulu Museum of Art. Have to get used to that name instead of calling it the Academy of Art. The chef changed but the food is still good.

    Such a nice day you had!
