John’s Asian Healthy Lifestyle and Fine Art, Taipei Exhibition and Sale of Fine Chinese Minority Textiles for Southwest China, July 9th to October 28th 2010.

Most of the textiles selected for this exhibition has a common denominator – they are all primarily of simple repeated geometric designs. Others have abstract plant, floral and organic patterns that show very little Han Chinese influence. Chinese dragons, phoenixes or other more typical Chinese flowers like the peony or plum blossom, do not feature in this show. Another common characteristic running through all the textiles in the show is the color combination. The textiles most are based on natural earth, water and sky tones with occasional reds and pinks. Extremely bright colors are not prevalent in the show. The aesthetics of this exhibition is extremely consistent.

Because of the simple geometric designs, many of the textiles are comparable to similar examples from primitive societies in Africa of Southeast Asia. As a result to work really well as contemporary fashion or as decoration for modern interiors.

If there is interest in any of the pieces in the facebook photos, please do not hesitate to contact John at
