Studio and Garden: Serizawa Keisuke and Textile Design

by sbrothier
Another of the exciting shows I saw while on my recent trip to NYC was a survey of the textile works of Serizawa Keisuke (1895-1984) at Japan Society, a Japanese designer who took his inspiration from the traditional techniques of stencil dyeing. This kimono was stunning in its color harmonies and surprising shapes. There were others just as dramatically beautiful. Some of the most startling designs were on Noren, or entrance curtains, their shapes strong and simple.

This Kataezome is printed upon Japanese hand-made mulberry paper and with full margins as published by the Keisuke Serizawa workshop between 1960 and 1970. It is signed with Serizawa's chopmark signature in the lower right corner.

Serizawa at the Japan Society Museum- artnet Magazine

by sbrothier
I had the good fortune to tour the comprehensive survey of works by textile master Serizawa Keisuke at the Japan Society, curated with admirable rigor by the society's gallery director Joe Earle, with two formidable blondes, Alexandra Peers of the Wall Street Journal and Alice Judelson of I-20 Gallery. As Peers commented, using an old journalistic term, "They buried the lede," by putting the jewels of the exhibition, Serizawa's incomparable kimonos from the 1960s, in a back room of the gallery, where you might miss them.
