BIO

My work revolves around the manipulation, appropriation, and de-contextualization of traditional Chinese art imagery and presentation as a way to explore how Eastern imagery is seen and understood in the US, and how ideas of cultural ‘authenticity’ and ‘tradition’ interface with contemporary identity. My materials are rooted in traditional Chinese art, working mostly in ceramic – based sculpture and watercolors.
