Shimura Fukumi - Her Vocation To Weave Life

Publisher Tokyo Bijutsu

ISBN 9784808711320

Idea Code 20315

This book appears in conjunction with an exhibition of work by Fukumi Shimura from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Shiga. Born in 1924, Shimura began to independently study the vocation of dyeing and weaving after being divorced at the age of 32. As an artist, she embraces the rich variety and harmony of colours which she has extracted from plants and then transferred to silk yarn, and her pure, sincere attitude towards nature is mirrored in her great respect for the natural sources of her materials. Her own in-depth studies of Japanese culture and classics imbue her woven textiles with a sense of the importance that colours have for the Japanese people.
