Kazumi Nagano is an artist reaching back to ancient traditions and reinterpreting these in a contemporary form. Her work is very much influenced by Nihonga, a technique that she studied during her university years. This is a traditional Japanese painting technique involving the use of rock pigments deriving from natural minerals. She makes use of colour as she would in painting, although the techniques to achieve the effect are different. She has developed the weaving together of strands of Japanese paper thread, gold, platinum, bamboo tape, along with nylon thread, to give her pieces suppleness, developing voluminous structures to be worn. Kazumi Nagano conveys delicacy by means of creating soft shapes. Interesting and unexpected effects are produced by transforming the woven material into three-dimensional forms and by the sequence of colour combination, light and shade. The suppleness of the pieces facilitates interrelation with the human body and makes them all the more appealing to touch. Her works are very intuitive and spontaneous. The skilful use of this technique gives a refined quality to the pieces, typical of Japanese art.
