Vivian has shared her thoughts about each work:

 

The Opulence of Kabuki

 

Kabuki, a stylized dance-drama is a fascinating reflection of ancient Japanese culture.  Though still performed today, the art of Kabuki reached its height during Japan’s Edo Period, 1603 - 1868.  During this golden era of art, Kabuki designers produced the most elaborate costumes ever seen in the history of theater, ranging from the simple and realistic to the incredibly elaborate. No expense was spared as evidenced by the frequent use of gold and silver thread.  Handmade by the most skillful artisans, many of these costumes were worth a fortune.

 

The exaggerated lavish style of Kabuki costuming was the inspiration for me to create “The Opulence of Kabuki,” where each sculpture is highly embellished with gold and silver metallic hues.  The colors and contrasts of the patterning, the use of black and the boldness of detail mirror the colorful graphics and dramatic costumes of the Kabuki actors.

  

1. “Golden Stripes” portrays a young man in his formal court attire.  The dramatic use of red and metallic gold coupled with the contrasting black “fabric” and hematite gemstones again reflects the influence of Kabuki costumes.

 

 2. Golden Circles” depicts a Japanese warlord in his elaborate kimono. The gold metallic circular shapes, heavily embellished bodice and highly contrasting design using the color black reflect some of the elements of Kabuki costuming that influenced the creation of this piece.

 

 3. “Silver Flowers” depicts a young girl wearing an open front jacket over a kimono tied with an obi sash.  The obi was adopted during the Edo Period and became a traditional fashion item, worn even to this day.  The lavish use of silver metallic hues emphasizes the kaleidoscope of patterns.  Large metallic flowers adorn the front skirt, sleeves and back.  The Kabuki influence is also evident in the medley of patterns all painted in metallic colors.
