A series of works collecting female beauty by embroidering photographs of women who sparkle and shine, women such as actresses, models, and musicians active in society. The embroidery brings out the true personalities and inner selves of the subjects by depicting them through the traits of plants and animals. Each work takes form through a series of processes from finding and contacting a potential subject, to directing the styling and photography, and producing the artwork. For the photography session, Kiyokawa may bring cloth and other materials and use them to improvise a costume. Afterwards, by layering embroidered images onto the graphical photographs, she reveals the internal strengths and inherent beauty that underlie the woman’s shine.
