“The use of kimonos combined with the concept of Wabi Sabi – the beauty of imperfection and the idea of Boroboro – that act of mending and reusing something tattered and worn -plays an important role in my creative process.”

“I reach into a heaping pile of fabric scraps, and gather a few pieces that speak to me. I start to play with them. Is there an idea here?”

OPEN KIMONO

Betz Bernhard

May 1st – July 1st, 2020

Bernhard’s hand-sewn works start as a simple scrap of fabric, sourced from her expansive cache of materials. Each found segment offers its own element of storytelling; the playful connection that materializes between pattern, color, shape and void weaves a narrative of diverse perspectives.
