I see my work as continuing the struggle between abstraction and figuration, and between spontaneity and meticulous planning. Based on my artistic training and scholarly pursuit in liberal arts, my works have been a continuation but also a subversion of the Western Canon. I am also interested in the fragility and potency of the human body, and ultimately create works that are accessible, yet uncompromising in their conceptual complexity.
Central recurring themes in my work are trauma, incompleteness, negativity, void, and alterity. As a transgender person of color, who grew up to be a third-culture individual, I find myself in certain liminal positions, hence experiencing alienation in a multitude of ways. I aspire to do work that could accommodate such density of meaning, while also being aesthetically inviting and enticing to the general public.
