art from:DANIEL BUREN for beaufort03 Daniel Buren was born March 25, 1938 in Boulogne-Billancourt (France). In the late 1960s Buren hit on the mark that connected him with ideas of space and presentation arising through deconstructionist philosophies backgrounding the May 1968 student demonstrations in France. Working in situ (on site), he strives to contextualise his artistic practice using the stripe - a popular French fabric motif - a means of visually relating art to its situation, a form of language in space rather than a space in itself. He began producing unsolicited public art works using striped awning canvas common in France. The stripe is a standard 8.7 cm wide. Denoting the trademark stripes as a visual instrument or ‘seeing tool’ he invites us to take up his critical standpoint challenging traditional ideas about art. He started by setting up hundreds of striped posters around Paris and later in more than 100 metro stations, drawing public attention through these unauthorised bandit style acts. In another controversial gesture he blocked the entrance of the gallery with stripes at his first solo exhibition. As a conceptual artist, he was regarded as visually and spatially audacious, objecting to traditional ways of presenting art through the museum/gallery system while at the same time growing in hot demand to show via the system. By the ’70s and ’80s he was exhibiting in Europe, America and Japan. In 1986 when Francois Mitterrand was President, he attained leading artist status after a contentious work in the Palais Royal court, Paris (see details above). That same year, he represented France at the Venice Biennale and won the Golden Lion Award In 1986 he created a 3,000 m? sculpture in the great courtyard of the Palais Royal, in Paris: "Les Deux Plateaux", more commonly referred to as the "Colonnes de Buren" ("Buren's Columns"). This provoked an intense debate over the integration of contemporary art and historic buildings. Often referred to as ‘the stripe guy’ Buren also expresses his theme in paint, laser cut fabric, light boxes, transparent fabrics and ceramic cup sets. His stripes are displayed in private homes, public places and museums world wide. In 2007 Buren has been awarded the Praemium Imperiale.

I used two Amy Butler prints from a quilt shop in Iowa, turned to the wrong sides, for the top of the bag and handles. The bottom of the bag is vintage Japanese indigo fabric from a flea market in Tokyo. I made the flower detail from cotton gauze. Lined in the same (reversed) Amy Butler pink awning stripe as the handles. When I reversed the Amy Butler pink awning stripe fabric, the softness reminded me of woven Japanese "aizumomen" fabric. My inspirations for this bag came from the Amy Butler fabrics and the watercolor-like early spring colors in Tokyo, especially the delicate plum and peach blossoms. Measures 10 by 12 inches. jokano@gmail.com
