Detail And Genius






The subtlety of these gorgeous kimono paintings belies the detail and genius.

So simple in composition and yet so much more. Click on the images to get the full impression of the detail in this brilliant work by the very talented Stephanie Rew, you'll be glad you did.

So beautiful. I can't believe they're paintings. That girl's a talent for sure.

Now THAT is painting. When they make it look so life-like, it just amazes me (-:

I can hardly believe these are paintings! They are exquisite. Thank you for sharing.

I love kimono, and was lucky enough to have lived in Japan many years ago for a year, where I was given the most amazing kimono for a man. We usually associate them with women, however men wear them as well. Even though plain in colour it is made of the most beautiful silk/wool blend!

It's so beautiful! Kimonos and Japanese prints are amazing! It's one of the things I really love and would love to own some of this beauty!

These are beautiful. In a way they remind me of some of Gerhard Richter's work, especially his Betty painting, which I love too.

Oh wow these are just beautiful pieces and love the others on her site.

I have two Kimonos, one wedding one and one very similar to the first here...from memory, been packed away for some time :(
