my materials

Color : solid color, transparent color; color next to color, layers of color, piles of color. Color hung. Color applied. Color glued.


In contrast to artists who transform ugly material, I take perhaps a more challenging route of working with intrinsically beautiful material: silk. The fabric is dyed with care using traditional Japanese techniques. The sensuous fabric is then ripped, cut, sewn, or glued. The inspirations derive from childhood – either the immersive experience of color as light, or the direct image of an animal, floating like a dream on fabric.
