Yu-Ping Lin, Europe based Taiwanese emerging designer maker, works with textile and jewellery.
Yu-Ping’s work is process-based and structurally complex. She practices paper cutting/folding where the ideas of 3D structures originate. Her work focuses on the notion of Origami and paper art, architectural structures, interaction and seduction of pattern; the original pleasure captured by the structure of organisms inherent in nature. “ I do not set out to be a jewellery or fashion designer but as my portfolio developed and I became interested in both elements and aesthetics.” The medium includes felt, synthetic fabric, silk and mixed media. Part of the material is coloured by hand painting, dyeing, digital printing or transferring and cut by laser cutting technique. With the resentation of the colour, pattern and structure, may this collection bring fun and fantasy to the audience.
