Yoshiko Kanai

Yoshiko Kanai

Several years ago my friend gave me a variety of colorful threads with an interesting history behind them. They were manufactured at her father’s factory in New York in the early twentieth century. I was so inspired by their brilliant colors and glossy texture that they led me to a full new set of ideas to explore.

In spring of 2014, I exhibited my works that used these threads at Agora Gallery. It was coincidental that their original knitting mill used to be situated right across the Hudson River. I felt as though these threads returned home in the form of art after many years of absence. 

My work is a reflection of my life. It contains everything about myself in the present and the past strung through by a long piece of thread. These beautiful threads will lead me to new creative possibilities. Over the past few years I feel as though the threads are stretching toward where I want to reach in my personal and peaceful universe.
