SF STATE NEWS -- Chinese fiber artist and curator Shi Hui, acclaimed for her artwork incorporating natural materials such as cotton and paper pulp, met with SF State students and faculty on September 17 and shared insights about her creative vision. “I like to use these materials because they have a natural life force to them,” she said. “When I use these fibers, I actually feel something.” “I think her art is very powerful because it's very pure and close to nature,” said Yi-Hsuan Lee, a graduate student in the Chinese program who attended Shi’s lecture. “The way she expresses herself is very touching.”
