ARTIST STATEMENT: In my paintings, I foster multiple positions in the cultural, anthropomorphic and art historical identities. As a child, I was weaned on Hello Kitty and various other hopelessly cute dolls and fluffy animals. Later, as an art student in United States, I felt nourished by Phillip Guston, Willem DeKooning, and also Italian painters like Caravaggio. I think of my characters as distant cousins of imagined creatures, avatars of anxiety, lust and longing. They iterate playfulness with dark underpinnings. Maybe underneath the sugary puff balls and banal gaze, it's all guts and turmoil and existential crisis. I hope the viewer can sense the edge of East/West, Abstract/Figurative. The fragmental element in my life becomes whole in my art.
