ARTIST OF THE MONTH
About The Art
Fiber Art, Embroidery
Painting by sewing for me is the format to address deeply negative, culturally constructed indifference. Andy Warhol proposed a witty way to inherit Marcel Duchamp’s legacy. From both Duchamp and Warhol I learned the relationship between handicraft and mass production, and between works of art and every day consumable commodities. As the times were changing, and moving to a more genderless and borderless culture, Warhol successfully embodied the spirit of the era. Now it's time for me.
