Color eliminated, charms diminished,
They have no expression,
With only pure white softness remains.
It should be standing in the corner of the room,
In its upright posture,
Like a thick white candle.
It’s so quiet.
“Even A Small Love” exhibition by Obscura Magazine is curated by illustrator Furze Chan. Here's the fabric work created by her for this exhibition —— "Penguin Islands" —— Penguins, penguin eggs, and raft-like cotton pads.
She used unbleached, washed canvas to make the stuffed figures this time.
They have a very natural beige, with a little bit of gray and carry a small amount of particulate impurities.
What’s special is the stuffing of the dolls,
It’s not polyester, but rather kapok that she has managed to find!
Some kapok seeds are still visible in the stuffing.
When a figure is stuffed with kapok,
It turns out that its outline is much smoother,
It feels much more sturdy,
And a little bit heavier.
