"Coppice" Kite by Michael Thompson

$7,280

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 “Coppice,” Thompson aligns fine kimono silk to create a graphic black and white composition. Like a passing storm, a dark fog parts to reveal clearer skies dotted with blue clouds and embroidered green fragments suggestive of lush foliage. At once abstract and figurative, the kite has a balanced simplicity that brings calm to its surroundings. Thompson has earned an international reputation for his kite works, an engrossing project initiated by the artist more than a decade ago. Split bamboo, muslin, silk, embroidery, pigment.
