Meditations on the In-between is a series of hand-knotted tapestry weavings, woven hangings and illuminated silks that examine belonging, home and the in-between. The sentiment of living within opposing value systems, rooted in my in-between identity as a first-generation
Chinese-American and constant search for belonging, is explored in a fragmented and pieced together environment of perceptual landscapes using color, texture and light. Slow methods of making such as natural dyeing, the weaving of broken threads and hand-knotting activate a meditative state and an opportunity to introspect.
[ BIO ]
I use textile making as an introspective tool to examine belonging, home and the
in-between and to release myself from the confines of identity, tradition & correctness. I
create work that integrates slow methods of making such as floor loom weaving,
tapestry weaving, patchworking and natural dyeing into spatial installations that use
color, texture and light as perceptual landscapes.
