Selected works by Sheena Liam Yue Sheen (粘悦馨).
Sheena Liam Yue Sheen (粘悦馨) is a Malaysian Chinese fashion model and artist. Born 1991 in Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia, Liam is also well known as the winner of the second cycle of Asia’s Next Top Model.
Throughout her body of work, Liam embroiders black thread onto hoops, introducing the female form into three-dimensional reality. Her pieces are primarily slice-of-life – each character is selectively interactive by way of the hair that extends from the cloth surfaces, yet remains detached, static and impassive. Liam captures the graceful and effortlessly intricate nature of human hair – and by extension, the human person.
