Artist of the Month: Lydia Fu (Pt. 3)

Salad Eater

Salad Eater by Lydia Fu: 7.5″ x 10″ Ink, gouache, and graphite on watercolor paper, 2014. Women and “gardening”, diet, standards of beauty.

Rios: What was the first piece of art you ever made?

Lydia: Wow, I don’t know if I remember… probably when I was a kid scribbling with a pen or pencil. I imagine a regurgitation of abstract expressionism, or maybe I just actually physically regurgitated on the paper itself – very postmodern…or Freudian? Whatever, life is art anyway (and art is life and back and forth forever and ever)  🙂
