Art Talking Women – Episode 5

Haruko Okano is a professional interdisciplinary artist with over 30 years practice integrating her concerns for the environment and our impact on the future of this planet, human rights and culture integrated as an integral part of her lifestyle. Although her art education was totally Eurocentric, she has broken away from traditional genres and begun to integrate methods and means that include elements from her Japanese ancestry, and holistic traditions common to many cultures in the world of hunters and gatherers. Haruko is a process based artist and tends to use recycled materials, including more organic matter and natural raw detritus, in her installations.
