Haruyo Morita


Many of Haruyo’s paintings hail from her deep appreciation of the style, flamboyance and drama of Kabuki theatre.

Persönliches

Haruyo Morita was born in Kita-Katsushika County, Saitama Prefecture in 1945.
From an early age her artistic talents were evident, and she came under the tutelage of Master Husuki. He introduced her to the classic narratives and pictorial compositions that have made Japanese images so popular both in Japan and in the West.
Whilst still a schoolgirl her work was accepted, in I 960, for the regional art competition, and prizes were won at the prefecture art exhibition (1962) and the Dai-cho ten exhibition.
After serving the mandatory apprenticeships Haruyo worked as a kimono painter and designer until 1972, at which point she turned to her current medium.
Her work can best be described as a contemporary representation of the traditional Ukiyo-e, and ranging from the Heian to Edo and Meiji periods.
Relocating to London in 1977, she has held exhibitions of her work in London, Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York, Saudi Arabia, Tokyo And Yokoyama.
Many of Haruyo’s paintings hail from her deep appreciation of the style, flamboyance and drama of Kabuki theatre. Thus to truly appreciate and enjoy Haruyo’s art an understanding of some of the special characteristics of Kabuki is necessary.
This training naturally imbued her with many of the design skills, displayed in her art, which are so obviously redolent of a unique national heritage.
Kabuki may have begun as an unruly infant, however it is very much part of mainstream Japanese culture today. Contemporary productions have become more realistic, ie less stylistic, but still rely upon the cultural legacy of the Edo period. As a source for Haruyo’s exotic and detailed image of the Kabuki theatre offers limitless inspiration, and celebration of the joy Haruyo finds in this very special art form.
She resides on the New South Wales coast at Korora, in Australia, where the light and climate are perfect for her work.
