About Fxiii Embroidery

‘Fxiii’ is a combination of letter ‘F’ and roman number ‘XIII’, as the artist lived in flat 13 while in England, and on 13th Floor in Taiwan, ergo the name ‘Fxiii’. It represents the importance of life experience to her art. Number‘ 13’can mean good or ill luck in different cultures, such characteristics symbolize more possibilities outside the norm.
Fxiii’s embroideries are not the warm, fresh and cute type of art, but more“ Why bother paper over the cracks when life is cruel anyway?” such helpless sense. The artist uses needle and thread to transit her observation of the society from narrative art to rather slow embroidery illustrations, record this imperfect yet beautiful world.
