KESA Series

About This Project

On-going Kesa series since 1995 comprises of pieced, individually colored fabrics, in vertical / horizontal composition in columns of either five, seven, nine or twenty five, corresponding to the established formality for the Buddhist monks’ robe. The work’s format is abstract and somewhat liberated, spontaneously expressive of the energy and spirit. Applied 23K gold leaf reminisces the grace and richness of the fabrics and colors traditionally used for this type of religious ritual robes.
