Xingchen Lu

Show RCA work

Major project:


Xingchen explores the concept of Tension and observes the static and dynamic, combination and separation from nature. She transforms the natural landscape into geometric patterns and explores the possibilities of knitted fabrics by using the combination of natural and unconventional yarns. Xingchen seeks different colours and texture combinations, to express power and vitality.
