At times, she is smiling and talking to someone around her as if she is dreaming. At other times, she is alone, deep in her own inner world. Kudo's gaze wanders after something that is reflected only in her mind. Is it a happy image that fills her mind? Or is it to avoid reflecting pain and sorrow in her mind? Or is it to keep pain and sorrow out of my mind?
Kudo's work has an endlessness to it, as if it were created through meditation. I wonder if she is aware that she is creating something right now. When she draws, when she sews, or when she is doing "something" that I don't understand. There is a mysterious air in her work that makes you suddenly feel such questions.
"irose" is a brand of small leather goods established by two designers, Gen Takahashi and Dai Takahashi. The word "irose" means "brother" in ancient Japanese, and is believed to be the origin of the word "color". The appeal of the brand is its high quality leather and made in Japan designs that show attention to detail. The brand features unique designs that evoke architecture or origami with their three-dimensional structures, using Japanese craftsmanship techniques such as folding and assembling a single piece of leather without sewing, and carefully hand-wrinkling high-quality pigskin one by one.
