Ichimatsu is a two-coloured chequered Japanese pattern used in woven textiles and paper works over the centuries. Often the colours are bleu/white or green/white and can be seen in the paper sliding doors within the Katsura Imperial Villa. The pattern became known as Ichimatsu in the 18th century after the kabuki actor Sanogawa Ichimatsu who liked to use it on his stage costumes. A recent work - this print is being exhibited at this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Nana Shiomi (b. 1956) works in the traditional Japanese woodblock technique. Her works often explore the theme of duality – of opposites and contrasts, and many shine a new light on symbols of Japanese culture. She lives and works in London.
