EIKO OKANO'S DELECTABLE WORLD Some people document their daily experiences with journal entries, photo snapshots, or social media posts. Eiko Okano chronicles everyday life with cloth depictions of her meals. Her stylized illustrations are spontaneous and loose. Despite their impressionistic qualities, however, her fish look freshly caught, her vegetables appear recently picked, her bowls of rice and soup seem to be steaming. Using playful materials and techniques, she translates the beauty of food into “delicious” quilts. Welcome to Eiko Okano’s delectable world.
