Robert Kushner uses oil, acrylic, glitter and gold leaf on canvas for "Nahenahe."

Inspiration from
a gentle landscape

Startbulletin Staff

Artist Robert Kushner titled his exhibition "nahenahe," which in slack key language means soft, sweet and gentle. Kushner lives and works in New York, but he is inspired by what he sees in Hawaii. He makes periodic visits to the islands where he paints and makes prints that reflect Hawaii's warm and sunny weather, and bright colors and rich plant life.

Kushner's large artworks, including a pair of brightly painted Japanese folding screens, are on display with "Small Works on Paper," a group exhibit by island artists Saba Daraee, Sanit Khewhok, Jinja Kim and Rebecca Ramos.

Jinja Kim's "Born Again," above, and Saba
