I'm completely smitten with the work of Takashi Iwasaki, particularly his colorful embroideries. They have a playful spirit reminiscent of Joan Miró or Alexander Calder, which of course, makes me smile. Yet there is also a narrative quality to these pieces, as if we are privy to a glimpse of some fantastic story already in progress. It appears as if some of the figures are moving right out of the fabric frame, don't you think? Also, his use of color is perfection.
