“Shapes, through repetition, generate sets of self-contained rules to create orderly, yet flexible patterns.” — Keiko Kamata

About the Artist

3ff618d2 d8ab 45ad 9462 3ad6bd8d4642

Keiko Kamata (b. 1974) seeks to capture the act of seeing colors and forms with minimal imposition of preconceptions. Her monoprints build complexity and depth with layered, transparent inks to create images that cannot be easily dissected but prolongs the act of looking. Her works have been exhibited notably at the International Print Center New York, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Contemporary Museum in Hawaii, and the International Print Biennial in Bulgaria. Collections include the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center and the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. Kamata received her BA in Education from ICU (Tokyo, Japan) and MFA in Printmaking from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
