This year, 2011, the Regional Arts and Culture Council has awarded an Individual Project Grant to Fuchsia Lin, to complete her textile sculpture and performance piece, Fantasy, Folklore, and Freshwater.I had the wonderful opportunity to attend Fuchsia’s performance this past Saturday. It was amazing and emotional. Beautiful.
In Asian mythology, dragons were believed to be rulers and benevolent spirits of moving bodies of water. Inspired by the stories of her culture, and continuing the exploration of her fascination with water, Fuchsia will create a series of sculptural masks and costumes of water dragons. Fuchsia often explores the theme of water in her art to express its inherent beauty and spirituality, as well as the importance of our relationship with this precious resource.
This collection of photos are just from my phone, I wish that you could have seen it in person. Learn more about Fucshia Lin at http://www.fuchsialin.com/main.html as well as mark your calendars because complete exhibition of the works will be held at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel on Thursday, December 8th from 7-10 PM.
