Chicago-based artist Michael Thompson creates unique kites crafted from split bamboo frames covered with stretched muslin and a collage of vintage Asian ephemera - including fragments of fabric, scrolls, drawings, and books collected during his travels.

Entitled "Fiddler Crab," this work reveals the split bamboo structure supporting his kite paintings. Hued by pastel pinks and blues, a layer of sheer gauze drapes over the rigid grid, adding an ethereal veil of color. Playing off this juxtaposition is a gestural splash of grey, finishing the kite with a graphic focus and a subtle sense of motion.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
