Jacqueline Qiu, Interplay

Jacqueline Qiu is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York. Exploring the breaking down of traditional fiber crafts and the combining of Eastern and Western painting philosophies, Qiu immortalizes transitory attachments and nomadic pondering through playful rearrangements and reconstructions of nature. Her woven tapestries hang at the conjunction between inner landscapes and the outer world. This past year, Qiu completed the Ós Residency at the Icelandic Textile Center in Blönduós. Her work has been exhibited at Latitude Gallery, Harper’s Chelsea, Underdonk Gallery, Woods-Gerry Gallery, Gelman Gallery, Rhode Island Hall, and Gallery 263. She has completed workshops at Tianzifang, New York Academy of Art, Anderson Ranch, and Huang Lan-Ye’s Kesi Studio. She holds a BFA in Textiles from the Rhode Island School of Design. jacquelineqiu.com | @jacqueline_qiu
