About the work

Since 1980, Kotai has worked across various media including, painting, drawing, printmaking and textiles. Landscape and natural surroundings inform her work which for some years has included stitched collages paintings, a self-devised technique which involves the artist cutting up her paintings into thin strips and reconfiguring them across a surface with the use of a sewing machine and invisible thread. This process, with its absorption of Kotai’s interest in Buddhist ritual and its embrace of the unpredictable, allows for infinite stylistic variations and uses colours to create pattern and rhythms across the canvas. Recently, she has assimilated this methodology into furniture, scarves, carpets and built forms.
