Junli Song

Silk: Materiality and Narrative

Junli Song used her artist in residency to continue experimenting with a silk stencil painting process that she created. Her work explores her experiences inhabiting a liminal space as a Chinese-American. Taking Western techniques of stenciling and using them with ancient Chinese materials, she created a process that is neither Eastern nor Western, but something in between. Junli continues pushing this development, both in terms of the creation of the silk pieces themselves, as well as how they are displayed.
