Xianmei Huang「SILHOUETTES IN WATER」|永續時尚之旅 1

/Artist 藝術家/

Huang Xianmei, female, Gelao ethnicity, was born in 1962 in Daozhen County, Guizhou Province. Influenced by her grandmother and mother, she developed a deep love for traditional ethnic folk arts such as paper cutting and embroidery from a young age. Driven by her passion and diligence, in her spare time, she always enjoys finding paper and scissors, cutting whatever she sees. Since retiring, she has become even more obsessed with the art of paper cutting, believing that "falling in love with paper cutting may only take a minute, but safeguarding its inheritance requires a lifetime of dedication. Choose one thing, and commit for life." Paper cutting and embroidery are my greatest interests and hobbies, but they have become the pursuit of my lifetime!

黃賢梅,女,仡佬族,1962年生於貴州道真縣,在外婆和母親的影響下,從小就酷愛剪紙、刺繡等傳統民族民間手工藝術,憑著自己的熱愛和勤奮,閒暇之餘,總喜歡找紙、剪刀,看到什麼就剪什麼。從退休之後,這真是“愛上剪紙可能只需一分鐘的事,但守候傳承剪紙需要一生的事。擇一事,終一生”,更加癡迷於剪紙藝術。 「剪紙和刺繡是我最大的興趣和愛好。但卻成了我一生的追求!

Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.

In the course of human societal development, tradition and the future have always been two undeniable forces. Tradition, as the accumulation of history, carries the wisdom and memory of a nation; while the future, as the direction of progress, embodies humanity's hopes and dreams. Balancing tradition and the future, allowing them to coexist harmoniously, has become an inevitable challenge of our time. Tradition is the foundation of culture and the source of national spirit. The future is the direction of development, the embodiment of technological progress. In the future, we need to continue to adhere to innovation-driven development, strengthen technological research and development, and promote sustained and healthy economic and social development. At the same time, we also need to pay attention to the problems that the future may bring and strive to achieve sustainable development.
