Lin Hsin-Chen – Happy – Bridge

A bridge is a structure spanning over a river. There are also bridges between hearts.
Happiness is a bridge spanned in the invisible space.
They communicate joy, happiness and well-being.
The abstract happiness is just like a summer landscape.

Nature teaches us that simple is beautiful.
Such a simple thing, why don’t we feel happiness?
Such an easy obtainment, why do we worry?
Make life simple and happy, so lay down desire and greed.
For you who see this work, I wish you a happy life.

Materials: acrylic fabric, flocked fabric, worsted fabric, woolen yarn, metallic thread
Techniques: 100% hand-stitched, appliqué, pieced, three-layer quilted
