In loving memory

In loving memory

Cyndi Wu
1990 - 2018


It is with much heartbreak and sadness that we are writing to tell you of the passing of our friend, artist and Dirt Palace member, Cyndi Wu.

Cyndi was a textile and apparel artist whose down to earth spirit, incisive mind and humble humor will be so sorely missed. As a spinner and weaver, she was sensitive to the whole cloth’s origins, embedding into her fabrics thoughtfulness and care to create playful new structures and materials full of softness, sensitivity and connections. Archiving memories through textiles, she carefully handled all of her creations, from the smallest details of her stitching to the complex patterns created to cover a whole surface. Through her art and gentleness she showed us a glimpse into her special way of seeing the world.
We are honored to have known her and to have been able to spend the past months with her. Our hearts go out to Cyndi's friends and family.
Together with friends, we are planning a memorial for Cyndi that will take the form of an exhibition of her work Thursday December 20th at the 159 Sutton Street Gallery.
All are welcome. We will spend the evening honoring Cyndi through her art work, photos and remembrances from 6p - 9p. Please get in touch (dirtpalace@yahoo.com) if you would like to be involved with the planning or have any questions.
