Kiyoko Sakai presents an installation On the Wall entitled Mostly Torso, which is composed of hand dyed textiles, drawings, and sculpture inspired by the female figure. She describes how drawing the figure gives her a sense of kinship with her female-self, and connects her to feminine culture around the world. Commanding most of the walls are large pieces of fabric in which Sakai has employed the traditional Japanese technique Katazome by creating a unique torso stencil. Included in the installation are figure drawings sketched from life. Sakai says, “I try to capture both the essence of the models and use my imagination to reflect on who they are and where they have been.” The sculptures utilize found objects and bring a playful, imaginative element to the installation.
