"Fiddler Crab" is a kite by Chicago based artist, Michael Thompson. For decades, he has created unique kites crafted from split bamboo frames covered with stretched fabrics and a collage of vintage Asian ephemera—including kimonos, obis, paintings, scrolls, drawings, and book pages collected on his travels. Viewing the bamboo grid through the sheer fabric of "Fiddler Crab" grounds the ethereal veil of color with earthy structure. Playing off of this juxtaposition is the splash motion created by the finishing subtle graphic.
