Accents

In kitsuke, or the Japanese art of wearing a kimono, people take colours and prints very seriously. Some of the meanings of the colours and layers have been lost to time, but the art remains. On some kimono, there are tiny accent colours scattered around a main colour or the backdrop colour. Some of these accent colours can be very subtle, such as the purplish shading on a red flower or the edging around a geometric shape. To maintain the harmony of the entire kimono set, people would incorporate that tiny accent colour into another piece in the kimono set to make that accent colour pop.

In the world of the minimalist artist, less is more.
