My work is born of my emigration from Hong Kong and evolves from my search for a sense of place, a feeling of belonging. My past is there and my present, here, in America; my art reflects what this unsettling transition has meant to me.
Threshold, my MFA project exhibition, serves as an expression of my personal feelings from the inside-out. Intuition plays an increasingly important role in my materials-based practice. Rather than starting out with a concept, my work reveals its meaning as the process unfolds. The sculptures in this exhibition are highly charged with eruptions of human emotion; they are the physical remnants of my memories. Through this mix of subconscious stirrings and physically tangible materials, the feeling of being unanchored and yet tied to distant memories, I shape a space where past and present merge.
