ARTIST STATEMENT: As an immigrant, woman, and person of color, I have tackled otherness in my work for years. In my most recent work, difference is implied and it is the dominant culture’s iconography being reconstituted into quasi-religious tableaux to resemble classical Western paintings in form but with unfamiliar content. Looking at art historical tropes as well as found images from social media, I have been drawing and painting these disparate elements on Mylar, sometimes layering the translucent sheets. My process echoes my memories of cultural assimilation: as a young child I fused the stories told by my Chinese/Taiwanese parents to the Western images surrounding me in order to create a comprehensive (albeit idiosyncratic) worldview. This process also refers to our brave new world of streaming images divorced from context, and the impulse to carve meaning.
