May 15, 2008—June 28, 2008 | Reception Thursday, May 15th, 6-8PM
James Harris Gallery is pleased to present our first solo exhibition by Seattle artist Maki Tamura. For over the past ten years, the artist has been using watercolor on paper to merge cultures through their decorative artistic traditions. The concept of the Baroque implies absurdity carried to excess. This idea characterizes the artistic practice of Maki Tamura. The show will consist of five meticulously constructed pieces that explore classical and rococo motifs found in 18th and 19th century European decorative arts.
