Art News by The Kubota Collection : The Kubota Collection today announces that Itchiku Kubota's unique work features in a new book by Cas Holmes, one of the UK's most renowned textile artists. Textile Landscape, Painting with cloth in mixed media, has just been published by Batsford, an imprint of Pavilion Books.

In the book, Cas explores the effect our local landscape has on our own memories and imagination – The book showcases the author's own personal, local pieces and travel diaries, as well as work from international artists, including Itchiku Kubota's Symphony of Light series from the collection.

She explains that "In Japan, the painting of cloth manifests itself as a wearable art form in the canvas of the kimono. The patterns and colours express a cultural appreciation of the landscape, where the natural world and seasonal changes provide the richest source of inspiration. She goes on to say that "One of the most impressive representations of this art form can be seen in the sublime work of Japanese artist Itchiku Kubota (1917–2003), who revived the lost art of Tsujigahana (silk dyeing) used to decorate elaborate kimono during the Muromachi Period (1333–1573)."

Marking the launch of the book, Cas is exhibiting at the Knitting and Stitching Show from 11-14 October 2018 at Alexandra Palace, London.

She has written for magazines including Embroidery Magazine, and has contributed to online publications including TextileArtist. She is the author of Stitch Stories, The Found Object in Textile Art and co-author of Connected Cloth, also published by Batsford.

About The Kubota Collection
Itchiku Kubota, (1917-2003) is considered to be one of the most important Japanese textile artists of the 20th century. He was inspired to create his artistic kimono using Tsujigahana, a long lost 17th century technique he spent 30 years re-inventing. By combining his own vision with the techniques of Tsujigahana, he created "Itchiku Tsujigahana".

The Kubota Collection is managed by the International Chodiev Foundation ("ICF"), the charitable foundation established by Dr Patokh Chodiev. Since 2013, the ICF has funded exhibitions of the kimono in 14 countries including Russia, Kazakhstan, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, USA and Canada, showcasing Kubota's art to more than 500,000[*] visitors.
