Title: Misty Heart (Detail)

Year Completed: 2012

Size: H82.5” × W62” / H210 cm × W158 cm

Material: old Japanese silk (kimono, obi, haori), modern American hand-dyed cotton

Statement: An old Japanese pattern known as "kasumi" or mist, has dynamic curves. I reinterpreted this pattern to allow these shapes to overlap to create a sense of depth. Most of the fabrics are Japanese antique, but one curve came from modern American hand-dyed cotton. Its brightness provided a necessary accent, without this fabric I could not have made this design.
