Kimono, 6 (After Rain) is part of a long series of paintings and monotypes which are an evocation of both the multicultural and temporal layering which exists in our contemporary experience and thought. They draw from, and play on, Chinese calligraphy, the Japanese kimono shape (as in this painting), reference to the horizontal scroll format (in the monotypes), the color relationships of traditional Korean dress, or hanbok, as well as references to the late 19th century Fauve painters of France. Color relationships are primary in the paintings, while gesture dominates the monotypes.
