Summary Artists/Hawaii celebrates the fiftieth state's visual arts through the featured works and personal profiles of twenty-two of Hawaii's most respected contemporary artists. Artists from Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii are profiled in this lavishly illustrated volume. From an original list of 160 artists working in a variety of media, the twenty-two chosen through peer selection describe in their own words their life, work, and reflections on the role of art in society. Each artist was interviewed by the editors and responded to a series of questions about their background, their style and medium, and how Hawaii has influenced their creative endeavors.
These personal and revealing sketches are followed by four signature pieces of each artist's work. University of Hawaii art professors Tom Klobe and Duane Preble visited with each artist prior to selecting the works featured in this book. Two pieces were identified as "career best" and two as outstanding recent works. Artists/Hawaii presents a captivating visual statement of the remarkable individual style of these twenty-two artists.
