My work reflects various, observable phenomena that stimulate my mind and senses; they can be natural or man-made.  I 'reorganize' them into a new presentation that can be described as surreal, amusing, graceful, or unexpected.

Artist list

Mariko Kusumoto
A playful, happy atmosphere pervades my work.  I always like to leave some space for the viewer's imagination; I hope the viewer experiences discovery, surprise, and wonder through my work.
My fabric pieces have been developed through much experimentation.  During the experimental process there is sometimes a breathtaking moment; I 'catch' those moments and develop ideas from that point. I like the softness, gentle texture, and atmospheric (e.g., translucent) quality of the fabrics I use.  
In all of my
work there is always the insistence on skill and craftsmanship.
