This is the beginning of a new series of explorations for me, which will probably be non-linear and concurrent with some of my other visual studies. leonel cunha asked a while back why I was using two canvases in my Painting with Code series. One of the reasons I create the artwork as diptychs relates to the way I see the pieces in my mind – as patterns on a kimono. When I was in Tokyo visiting the incredible Marcos Weskamp, I spontaneously went to see a play and as I sat waiting for it to start, I watched how graceful and beautiful the women looked in their kimonos.
This series simply adjusts the substrate I’m working on – from canvas to a silk kimono – in order to be truer to my original vision. I hope you enjoy it.
