Exploring women in kimonos is one of my main themes I have been working on for quite some time.The falling red leaves express the harshness and fragility of reality, and the red leaves which is the pattern of the kimono express the glitter and emptiness of fantasy. Moreover, they mean Japanese traditional aesthetic of “ke” (ordinary days) and “hare” (special days).
