Visit with Erin Zhao
Reflecting on the tradition of embroidery passed down from her grandmother, a Bouyi ethnic minority from China, Erin Zhao gives us a closer look at her Poem series. Incorporating embroidery and colored vinyl film on top of rainbow-roll monotype relief prints, she creates prismatic meditations on light, color, and the intangible qualities of perception.
Similar to how I mix and layer translucent oil-based ink to create monotype relief prints, I cut and compose translucent vinyl films with the monotypes to create additional depth and interest. I then sew them together using needle and embroidery floss.
