This catalogue was published on the occasion of the Förderpreis für Bildende Kunst awarded to Jiro Kamata & it is presenting the Arboresque series of brooches on which Jiro Kamata is still working.
An unusual, bolder use of colour is immediately noticed in Arboresque, where most of them display bi-colour combinations: an eroding green wall, revealing layers of deep purple beneath; a blue pickup truck,
brimming with yellow marigold blossoms; a woman in a white dress, pink flowers in her hair, spinning to the rhythm of a festive orchestra; the deep blue sky of a Mexican evening, stained with the darkest rain clouds. By applying acrylic and acetone and using the Japanese ancient suminagashi technique to decorate paper, Kamata masterfully re-interprets Mexico’s colourful palette.
