Terms of Beauty (2004-2011)

Terms of Beauty VII presents nine bronze busts of the classical Venus with reconstructed facial features depicting diverse racial and ethnic characteristics. The deconstruction of the idealized western classic into hybrid features of multi-racial characteristics challenges racial hierarchy and cultural politics in contemporary global social relations.
