Dyeing Textiles of Samiro Yunoki
patterns and colors
April 3rd (Tue)–June 24th (Sun), 2018
Samiro Yunoki (1922-) started his career as a dyer inspired by Soetsu Yanagi’s philosophy and Keisuke Serizawa’s stencil-dyeing works. Not only he has engaged in dyeing works, also focused on training the young. Various exhibitions have been held both in Japan and abroad, for example Guimet Museum of Asian Art, France. Thus, he still has kept producing new works actively. It is said that the ability to create patterns is getting weaker in the field of crafts today, but patterns and colors produced by Yunoki fulfil us as if water in a desert.
