International Exchange -- Viewpoints 9 (Cycle 7) Challenge 6–Heatwave

Viewpoints 9 (Cycle 7) Challenge 6

Title of Work: Heatwave

 

Artist Statement:

The planet is sick! The cyclical warming climate continues to expand. What do the warning signs of global warming and pandemic mean to us? Human beings are threatened by wars and climate disasters. Terrifying unknowns are increasing in every aspect, affecting the global economy, food supply chains, and natural ecology. Fear in the global village is spreading like a butterfly effect.

The principle of survival of the fittest should focus on respect and protection! The flowering period of Poinciana is abnormal. Plants know it a long time ago that they might not see flowers bloom and fall. Bees are gone! They know a living crisis is coming! Due to the indeterminate flowering period and ecological deterioration, species are in danger of extinction.

Dear friends, is everything okay? Such greetings are the daily routine during the pandemic, meaning your self-protection is appropriate, and being safe is a blessing. As a quilter, I stay calm, enjoy being alone to sew the quilt stitch by stitch and pray that the pandemic will subside and everyone will be safe.

Materials: recycled fabrics, commercial fabrics, artist’s dyed fabrics, silk, lace, embroidery floss

Techniques: hand stitched, hand pieced, hand appliquéd, hand quilted

Size: H 41" x W 41"

Ideas and Thoughts:

Safety First

From the work, PM2.5, I created in 2015 depicting air pollution; I see the uneasy environment we are facing today. The whole world is overwhelmed by viruses, which defeating the health of people on earth. People are forced to sacrifice their freedom in exchange for peace and safety due to extreme weather. The impact has expanded infinitely. It’s a challenge to human survival, changing everything in the future.

International Exchange -- Viewpoints 9 (Cycle 7) Challenge 5–World Peace

Viewpoints 9 (Cycle 7) Challenge 5

Title of Work: World Peace

Artist Statement:

Living in an out-of-control world, people panic and feel anxiety and sadness because of wars, viruses, extreme weather, and natural or man-made disasters. No one can escape these. They destroy the peace and freedom of human beings. People have been living an ominous and hard life for a long time. The joyful and tranquil old days faltered. I pray for an early restoration of world peace.

Materials: recycled fabrics, commercial fabrics, artist’s dyed fabrics, silk, lace, ribbons, embroidery floss, metallic thread

Techniques: hand stitched, hand pieced, hand appliquéd, hand quilted

Size: H 41" x W 41"

International Exchange -- Viewpoints 9 (Cycle 7) Challenge 4–Blessings for the Future

Viewpoints 9 (Cycle 7) Challenge 4

Title of Work: Blessings for the Future

Artist Statement:

The roses are in bud, and in the days to come, they pray for themselves and bloom beautifully. They contribute their energy to decorate the world. Some fear that life is short, and soon becomes a thing of the past, like vibrant colors faded and disappeared in a blink of an eye. It reminds us to live in the moment. Cherishing the present is the real possession.

As we are looking forward to the future, we are most afraid of the uncertainty of unknown, and we feel that we are exploring the road in the dark. "Future Images" is something very abstract. If we can predict possible uncertainties in the future, and if we have the courage to take challenges, we can overcome fear. I keep reminding myself about this as I sew the piece stitch by stitch.

Materials: recycled fabrics, artist’s dyed fabrics, commercial cotton prints, Romanian thread, embroidery floss, ribbons

Techniques: leaf rubbings, hand stitched, hand pieced, hand appliquéd, hand quilted

Size: H 41" x W 41"

Ideas and Thoughts:

Feeling Uneasy

The 4th work of the 7th cycle is taking place between 2021 and 2022. The cold winter and the pandemic are testing my mood. I must admit that the time for creating and sewing this work is very short, and I feel uneasy. I really don't know if there is enough time for me to complete this work. Maybe it’s a life lesson to learn!

I wish you all stay safe and healthy during the pandemic. Happy creating!
