Topophilia - Imbuing in Maru, 2006

Keiko Hara
(Japanese, born 1942)

Location: Seattle Central College, Seattle

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Keiko Hara used fragments of fabric and text from around the world to evoke a sense of interconnectedness in the face of a period of global conflict. The title "Topophilia-Imbuing in Maru" refers to the love that each of us holds for places of personal significance and the Japanese word for circle, indicating something infinite.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Seattle Central Community College.
