Lin Hsin-Chen – Monochromatic – Joyous Celebration
Every culture has their unique way of celebration, so does the Chinese-speaking world. Red is the most representative color in Chinese culture. You can see red and gold at every occasion that related to happiness and joy. In Taiwan, every family has a festive ornament for New Year. As a quilter, I chose red for the monochromatic challenge. I use a variety of materials in this work to enhance the joyful and festive atmosphere. Though the sewing is difficult, it highlights the creative meaning and preciousness of this work.
I hope 2015 brings you peace and joy, and prosperous creating!
