Kimono Antonella Cusimano
Silkscreen printing on fabric
2019

I needed my drawings to move and get them free from the confinement and limitation of the frame attached to the wall.
The Kimonos Project has started!
Here it is the first one. It has being made in viscose fabric and silkscreen printed
I'm feeling happy about it! More of them will follow!
Why a kimono?
Kimono means literally 'something to wear on the shoulders'. It's something easy to wear and gives a sense of freedom because easily follows the movement of the body, and fits every kind of body shape.
The meditative practice of my drawing process has a link to some extent with the oriental artistic practices.
The kimono shape emphasises then the meditative creative process of the drawings.
