Description

This design was inspired by the Chinese painting, The Spring Bamboo, drawn by the designer’s father who lives in China. The purposes of creating this design were to: (a) experiment the Chinese ink as the silk painting material on the wearable art and (b) fuse the aesthetic concepts of Taoism and the symbolization of the bamboo in Chinese painting with the Western garment silhouettes. The designer tested the feasibilities of using Chinese ink as a textile painting medium on silk fabrics using protocols from the AATCC. To fully convey the spirit of the inspiration painting, and the meaning of the bamboo in Chinese culture, the designer used only black and white to represent the believes of Taoism. The center panel with different sizes of a triangular shape presents the hollow inside of the bamboo stalk using a folding technique and hand painted with Chinese ink and embellished with black beads.
