Stride Arts Virtual Exhibition:
Stride Arts would like to share with you Mei Lu’s newest work created during the pandemic: ‘Folding 2020’ featuring 27 mixed media pieces. In this series, paper is folded and draped to form different shapes and layouts, transforming structures into astonishing new images.
Mei Lu uses the folded peaks, valleys and unpredictable nature of the medium to invoke the vicissitudes of a single person's life journey as well as those of a world facing the chaos and uncertainty of the current pandemic.

Mei Lu's art works comes from her intensive study of different culture and her personal life experience. She thinks art is universalism, beyond time and space, Eastern and Western. In her “Pyramid” series, She repeat and overlay squares to form the “Pyramid” structure of our sub-consciousness “Reaching to the sky” illustrates the pathway that connects humans with the universe. "Pyramid” pushes through the earth’s gravity in the pursuit of dreams, spirits and the unknown, which awakes human self-awareness to pursue their dreams, spirits and restore more peace and love in the world. Her new creations “Folding” series, she folds and drape the paper to form different shape and layout, which like moving sculpture, she broke the structure to reshape new images from her heart. She said: Life is a Journey to return back home.
