The fine art of kimono embroidery
Summary: "The Fine Art of Kimono Embroidery showcases the art of the talented embroidery artist Shizuka Kusano." "Kusano's canvases are kimono, obi (the kimono sash), and tapestries, on which she creates compositions in brilliant color and subtle tones, with a rich contrast in textures. Her themes are drawn from Japanese poetry, literature, and art, as well as traditional seasonally-oriented motifs such as trees, flowers, birds, and streams. Working exclusively with silk threads and fabric, and delicately balancing the use of space in her composition, Kusano's designs achieve the sophistication for which the best Japanese art is known.".
