Product Description

Hardcover, 168 pages

Karen LaMonte is a world-renowned contemporary artist who has gained international recognition for her life-sized cast-glass sculptures of dresses emptied of their inhabitants. Having focused for a decade on dress styles and drapery characteristic of Western society from the dress of classical statuary to the sumptuous flow of cloth in baroque painting and sculpture LaMonte turned her attention four years ago to Japan and the clothing that most embodies that culture: the kimono. This volume illustrates her new works in bronze, ceramic, glass and rusted iron along with essays by the artist and Laura Addison, the Curator of Contemporary Art at the New Mexico Museum of Art.
