Having studied and worked between China and America, my works have been influenced by the drastically different cultural and ideological contexts of the two countries. Interested in how the interaction with the environing world would affect our existence, I question and deconstruct my roles in both private and public space by investigating the social construction of identities through the act of painting and drawing. My works examine the fluidity of our self-images and relate to the broader human experience of the ambiguousness of identity such as gender, sexuality, and nationality. The objective of my works is to reinterpret the categories into which we are born to rearticulate the discourse around them. My studio practices involve a variety of materials such as oil, watercolor, acrylic, and charcoal.
