"Standing in the Shadow of Nature" is a kite by Chicago based artist, Michael Thompson. He creates unique kites crafted from split bamboo frames covered with stretched muslin and a collage of vintage Asian ephemera -- including kimonos, obis, paintings, scrolls, drawings, and book pages collected on his travels. This work is finished with an abstract painting of a person in a forest. Here the ephemera is peeking out behind the trees. Michael Thompson has been creating kites for more than a decade. His kites have been exhibited internationally.
