The other day, I have visited JR Kyoto Isetan Department store to see Fumiko Matsuda's amazing art work. Her work are exhibited and sold on 9th floor until June 04.
She is an interior coordinater and Senior registered architect who is now making beautiful interior display called `Art Hyoso'. Hyoso literally means `mounting'.
You may have seen Japanese `kakejiku' (scroll) or `byobu (screen). She uses vintage kimono, obi and fukusa for mounting and makes amazing display.
Her works were exhibitied in Gump's SanFrancisco as well as the most famous department store, Mitsukoshi and Isetan in Tokyo. There are many students of her Hyoso classes in Tokyo and Kyusyu area.
Here are her work:
(made of vintage fukusa)
(made of Meiji era kimono)
These are some of the photos of her work from JR Kyoto Isetan↓
Some of the screens are reversible - you can enjoy each side.
The byobu looks three-dimentional. This is one of the characteristics of her work.
Some `little display' items were sold too (you may notice some textile from kimonotte are used for these small items, but they are exception). She uses only vintage kimono mainly.
If you are interested in purchasing her book, they are available. They include full of impressive photos of work by her and her students.
