Mariko Kusumoto: Fibre Explorations

“My work reflects various, observable phenomena that stimulate my mind and senses; they can be natural or man-made.  I ‘reorganize’ them into a new presentation that can be described as surreal, amusing, graceful, or unexpected.  A playful, happy atmosphere pervades my work.  I always like to leave some space for the viewer’s imagination; I hope the viewer experiences discovery, surprise, and wonder through my work.

My recent fabric pieces have developed with much experimentation and demonstrate an evolution from the properties of metal to something completely opposite.  During the experimental process there is sometimes a breathtaking moment; I ‘catch’ those moments and develop ideas from that point.  I like the softness, gentle texture, and atmospheric (e.g., translucent) quality of the fabrics I use.  In all of my work there is always the insistence on skill and craftsmanship.” – http://www.mobilia-gallery.com/exhibits/mariko-kusumoto-fiber-works/
