Red Barn Studio Museum
Shin-hee Chin returns to the Red Barn Studio Museum from Dec. 8-Jan. 27. The spacious south studio will be her creative ground, enabling her to work on numerous pieces all at once.
“I want to explore the abstract and non-figurative aspect of art quilt: alongside the current focus on humanity, I plan to explore text and image, language and identity, landscape and environment,” says Shin-hee.
Shin-hee creates works rich in texture, color and depth. By incorporating fiber, thread and stitching, she provides a unique interpretation, converting the conventionally feminine craft of needlework into a medium for art making. With her strategic use of stitching, random weave and stitching, wrapping and binding with recycled quilts, she converts the conventionally feminine activity of needle works into a medium for art making and a source of voice and power for women.
Visitors can expect to see Shin-hee’s concepts and musical inspirations unraveling vividly into visual artworks, illuminated by a vibrant spectrum of colors. She aspires to meld abstract and representational images harmoniously, portraying the deep connections between art, music, and spirituality. If you’re unable to experience her artistry unfolding in person, visit Chin’s website. For more information into Chin’s focus and process, go to Visit Lindsborg.
