Obtaining permission from the photographer Catherine Juillerat to use in my work her black and white portrait of Mr. CHU, a Vietnamese Master in embroidery has become an imperative. This accomplished, begins the journey. Undoing the weft by removing the threads and then reworking the remaining ones differently in each block , tilting these blocks in the background and keeping them in balance, using strong colors - white, black and red - all to symbolize the struggle, energy and perseverance needed to accomplish the life's long journey. Finally, my pleasure: the portrait.
