Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Accomplished cross-media artist based in Hangzhou, Chu is well-known for her photographic and calligraphic works which are deeply influenced by Chinese philosophies and classical texts. She was first inspired by branches and flowers she found during visits to the botanical garden near her home. After bringing them back to her studio she photographed them over a period of years. Upon printing the images, she paintstakingly applied calligraphy directly onto the photographs making each one of them unique.
