Gorgeous example of katazome on paper

This week the Dreamers Rise blog features a katazome calendar created by Takeshi Nishijima, who was apparently a contemporary of Serizawa Keisuke (1895–1984). Click the image below to link to the full article and to see the rest of the calendar images. They are extraordinary! The blog also features a review of the Serizawa show at the Japan Society of NYC, which closes on January 17th.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.
