Nature in Textiles – the Work of Chiyoko Tanaka and Naomi Kobayashi

Keiko Kawashima, JP

From the late 1970s Japanese textile artists flourished internationally.
At that time international textile exhibitions were held in Lausanne, Switzerland and Lodz, Poland.  Japanese textile artists had a good reputation. Especially the works of Chiyoko Tanaka and Naomi Kobayashi got favourabe notice. Both Tanaka and Kobayashi studied textiles at the university. After they acquired traditional textile

techniques, their works evolved into contemporary expression.
Both have studios in the suburbs of Kyoto. They produce their works sensitive to the changing natural landscape of the four seasons. I am going to introduce their works referring to their background and the process of making their works.

Keiko Kawashima, graduated from Seian Women College of Art & Design, Kyoto Textile department and from Doshisha University , Kyoto Japanese Art History. Since 1988 she is director of GALLERYGALLERY in Kyoto and since 1996 director of the Kyoko International Contemporary Textile Art Center (KIC TAC). She is co-coordinator of international exhibition in UK, Lithuania Belgium,Bulgaria, Australia, etc. She was member of international juries, e.g. the International Triennial of Tapestry, Lodz (Poland), Textile 05 (Lithuania), Miniartextil (Italy) and gave lectures at the University for Creative Arts (Farham, UK), Kyoto National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, Japan, National University Sofia, (Bulgaria), SOFA and Japan Society in New York, (USA).
