Textile Studio

Shuyu Lu

Lu utilizes archetypal Chinese images and embroiders them onto 18th
century French Toile de jouy. Harmony and awkwardness are juxtaposed.
Her work creates numerous relationships – the handmade vs. mass
production, old vs. new, east vs. west, traditional vs. contemporary
and slow vs. fast.  Lu graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Design in Material Art and Design, Fibre. Her work strikes a balance between art, craft and design and focuses on screen-printing and embroidery. She was accepted into Harbourfront Centre’s artist-in-residency programme in 2009.
