Title: Playful Abundance

Year Completed: 2008

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

Material: old Japanese silk (kimono and haori linings), old Japanese cotton, modern cotton

Statement: I created large curved shapes in the background through the use of slightly different shades of kusakizome, and then added many rectangular box-like shapes, all in the same diagonal orientation, using my very fond Indonesian batik, Japanese striped fabrics, and linings from men's haori (jackets worn over kimono) for the endpieces. Once again I realized that for some reason these were much more interesting than the linings for women's haori.
