An artist and a scholar, my work is both physical and conceptual, dealing with memory, identity,
process and traditional women's work. My most recent work are process based experiments in
drawing in textile, stitches replacing ink.
My abstract work encompasses basic shapes such as lines, circles and triangles. These forms are
not only the building blocks of the cosmos, but also powerful symbols that have
been used in many cultures all over the world.
Community enabled catharsis through the repetition of small acts that are cumulative yet transient
and for a greater good. Good citizens save a certain type of plastic from the waste stream and that
plastic I then weave into a matrix.
My paintings negotiate the duality and dichotomy of my existence as an Asian immigrant woman
in America. I paint still life of food symbolic of the imagery of desire for female body, surrounded
by transnational icons and patterns.
