Exhibition Opening Reception and Artist Talk
This Story Has Not Yet Been Told…The Work of Tim Okamura

This Story Has Not Yet Been Told is comprised of paintings created within the last decade that have emerged from a life-long fascination with the emotionally expressive power of the human form and an intense interest in the juxtaposition of people in their environment. Okamura uses an academic-based, realist approach to painting that  incorporates the mark-making and spontaneous language of spray-painted graffiti, collage, and iconograhic ‘signage’ in attempt to weave the nuances of relationships of ethnicity, social identity, and inner-city sub-culture into his subjects’ stories, as captured on canvas.

This Story Has Not Yet Been Told…The Work of Tim Okamura is on display at the Stone Center’s Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery and Museum from September 12 through November 29, 2013.
