I came upon Christina Lee piece with the title “Blow”. The piece is formed with crocheted yarn spun around to be the shape of a circle with a painted skewer stuck right down the center vertically and taped with masking tape vertically. The right side of the piece has staples attached to the wall in a spray pattern. The piece reminded me of the cycle of earth. When something dies, another thing is reborn. The crocheted yarn being a piece of life that is stabbed through the heart with the skewer, with the staples being a sign of seeds coming out blossoming new life.
When i read Christina Lee’s statement on GLAMFA, it was different from what I expected but similar at the same time. She says that her art is from day to day experiences that she collects artifacts to make her art. Christina also stated “ I use materials that are fragile and unstable because they mirror what i sometimes consider to be the impossibility of our experience”. I believe that to be similar to what i thought. A life is fragile and we don’t know when something is going to die or happen. We have no control of the actions because they are unpredictable.
