Graces (2005-2012)

The appropriation of female imagery in my work functions as a symbolic metaphor that addresses contemporary cultural dynamics and global social relations. The dissonance of Asian women’s bodies hybridized with western classical goddess heads allegorically captures contemporary global socio-cultural and political dynamics. The series addresses critical issues from art history, social values, and interracial relations in contemporary societies. It simultaneously reflects on the implications of real and ideal, as well as the properties and forces of human perception.
