The fascination of the kimono is still strong for Maxine Parkin-Jones in her third exhibition titled ‘Kimono Revisited’ at Taupō Museum. However the theme of recycling gives this exhibition its point of difference. Recycled clothing, damask tablecloths, old obis, leather and kimonos have all been used.

Her previous exhibition explored the intriguing world of the Orient using various many-layered and complex application techniques. A subtle sense of age and historical intrigue was achieved. These canvases have been taken off the wall, cut up and re shaped into small kimono for this new show.

New Zealand born artist Maxine Parkin-Jones started her career as a freelance visual merchandiser and fibre artist. Her art is an extension of her continuing attraction and fascination with textiles and fibres such as pure cotton, silk and hemps. She continually pushes the boundaries discovering new techniques and materials.

Maxine has exhibited throughout Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Great Britain and the Middle East. Examples of her work are found in foyers, restaurants and both private and corporate collections throughout the world.

‘Kimono Revisited’ is being shown in the Niven Room from 17 August until 9 September. Taupō Museum is open daily 10am – 4.30 pm and is free for all children and residents of the Taupō area.
