Artist Statement: I am enamored by identities. A lot of my work layers symbols and organic shapes, most often abstract, of memories and emotions from mine and other’s experiences navigating the world as Asian American womxn. I play with what I call ingredients or roots, the broken down layers of a feeling, an emotion, a memory, the origins of all of them, to create a sense of nostalgia. I use bright, bold colors as a way to defy the stereotype that I must be muted and passive. Although I primarily create with traditional drawing and digital tools, I have recently ventured into experiential design and exploring installation materials. Playing around with these new mediums allow me to create immersive art experiences and provide a space for myself and others to tell our stories and make new and vibrant lasting memories.
