Red Barn Studio Artist-in-Residence: Fiber artist, Shin-hee Chin - Reception

Friday, January 12

Shin-hee Chin will be exhibiting and creating fiber art through abstract stitching on recycled fabrics. In particular, Shin-hee Chin creates pictorial quilts of landscape scenes using thread work. Besides her fiber art, Chin creates collages that combine oil painting, fiber and used materials. Her beautiful scenes are of grasses or a lone tree in a field, or gold fish swimming in a circle. Of her work, she says, “It is an effort to re-valorize women’s labor and work by reinterpreting them as a positive creative act. Through the incorporation of fabric, fiber and thread, I convert the conventional ‘feminine’ activity of needle work into a medium for the making of art. The slow repetitive nature of stitching enables me to be more mindful of the present, and the passage of time. I symbolically partake in creating a new synthesis, not as a passive and silenced woman but as an active maker of my own culture.” Find Shin-hee Chin on her website: http://www.shinheechin.com.
