Edmonton: Profile of Amy Loewan

Amy Loewan is a Hong Kong born artist who now lives in Edmonton. Her current art project is called The Peace Project.

It consists of floor-to-ceiling wall hangings made of rice paper strips woven in a simple, flat basket weave. Words of peace in many languages are interwoven, some legible and some obscured by other words. There are also faint charcoal markings and shadings on the hangings.

As part of our series East Meets West, CBC Radio's Dalia Thamin visited Amy in her studio, which is really a transformed garage behind her house in Edmonton's Ritchie neighbourhood.
