2021 Chalk Hill Artists in Residence

Sheng Lor
September 2021

Sheng Lor is a Hmong-American artist based in San Francisco, CA, whose process-driven practice combines thread, natural dyes, and visual language to explore new narratives through cloth.

Her current project Dyeing Flora is an inquiry into the impact of the textile production on communities and the controversies surrounding it. While at Chalk Hill, she will be foraging for natural dyes to create a local fiber-based work which can be used to express the climate resiliency of certain sites based on their dyeing flora.


We highly encourage you to visit her website to view her beautiful weaving and textiles, and learn more about Sheng's inspiration.
