Ho-Tzu Ni was awarded a five-month grant to carry out a residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, California and to observe contemporary art activities in New York. Ms. Ni is a creative sketch artist with a unique perspective and a youthful, expressive style. Through her drawings, she reveals an intimate, personal, and delicate perspective on the world in which she lives. She has exhibited throughout Taiwan and in Hong Kong, and she also shares her work through her own independent online publishing label. Provided with the opportunity to explore life in the United States on both the West and East coasts, which involved an interview project asking people about their wildest aspirations, she subsequently seeks to create a series of drawings rendering her respondents’ dreams, wishes, desires, and plans.
