Channeling Abstract Expressionism and the chic insouciance of street fashion, Chicago artist Michael Thompson creates a minimalist yet rhythmically charged composition in “D’Arcy.” An addition to his ongoing Kite series, the painting comprises a canvas of stretched muslin over a support of bamboo. According to Thompson, the kite format is more accessible and whimsical than a traditional canvas. Sculptural in nature and inherently informal, his kites are just as at home hanging from the ceiling as being displayed on a wall.

Thompson has earned an international reputation for his kite works, an engrossing project initiated by the artist more than a decade ago.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
