Shizuko Kimura: The Poetics of Form

Working directly from live models and using a needle and thread, Japanese artist Shizuko Kimura creates intricately rendered figure drawings that fuse Asian aesthetics with Western concepts of figurative art and abstraction. In allegience to the performative elements of drawing, her intimate works demonstrate the stitched mark's ability to record subtle gesture and capture the essential vitality of the human body through a reductive use of line and texture.
