"Clover Valley (Red)" Kite by Michael Thompson

$7,480

About

Chicago-based artist Michael Thompson creates unique kites crafted from split bamboo frames covered with stretched muslin and a collage of vintage Asian ephemera—including fragments of fabric, scrolls, drawings, and books collected during his travels. In “Clover Valley (Red),” Thompson plays with pattern and color, assembling a vibrant landscape of saturated parchment and silk brocade. Seeking balance the intense purple of the central panel, the artist segments the kite with blocks of solid color, linked by inky sweeps of blue, purple, and red. A joyful exploration of color, Thompson describes the work as "a collage that requires balance, flow, integration, a narrative of sorts, and a resolution." Thompson has earned an international reputation for his kite works, an engrossing project initiated by the artist more than a decade ago.
