In Her Zen Garden
Artist: Mei Li
Inspired by a desire to reconnect with nature, this series of sculptural wall hangings and paper scrolls bring a bit of zen indoors. Modern textiles and frames are combined with traditional Chinese watercolor and folk paper-cutting techniques to showcase meticulously hand-cut details. The pieces can be sharp but soft, crisp but flowy, playing with light and shadow as well as different textures to explore the possibilities of a cultural craft.
