In a departure from map shapes, Kimono echoes the form of this classic Japanese garment. Although Deborah’s work is often characterized by intense color, she also gravitates to a quieter white palette. Kimono is composed of mostly white feathers with swirls of red and black for contrast. These feathers are silk-screened on fused plastic bags and if you look closely, you will see images of endangered birds and endangered languages.
