Colour calendar of Kyoto – Fukumi Shimura’s 90th birthday anniversary exhibition-
I have received this opportunity to have an exhibition of my works in Asakusa which possesses the rich fragrance of Edo culture.
I had been deeply longing to enjoy the atmosphere of Asakusa once, but I had not had the opportunity until today. I am so happy that I am unexpectedly given this opportunity to have close contact with this culture of chicness. In every season I have received immeasurable benefits from plants by their colours and I have made kimonos to express a part of this benefit as a colour calendar.
I would be delightful if I could convey the taste from Sagano, Kyoto in some way.
I am looking forward to your visits.
On a fine day, February, Fukumi Shimura
