Journey With Me Towards My Grad Exhibition: #3

Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 10.19.49 PM.png

Here is another sneak peek of what I’m showing!

Yup. Bananas.

As I mentioned in my 10 Layers of Hong Kong post, a lot of the art I do revolves around me understanding what it means to be both Chinese and Canadian. Calling someone  a “banana” is a derogatory term used to describe a person who is “yellow” on the outside and “white” on the inside. What composes the image of the banana on the cover are the Chinese words 作嘔 which means loathsome or disgusting.

Stay tune for more sneak peeks!!

Nothing beats the excitement and nervousness of having to show your artwork to a big audience. You want to make something that is worth watching.

I’m counting down 4 more sleepless nights till the big show >_______<

10 Layers of Hong Kong

A lot of my artworks explore what it means to be Chinese Canadian. There is always a space of “in-betweenness” that I have felt being born in Canada with strong cultural roots in Hong Kong. 10 layers of Hong Kong, is a series of painting that explores the fragmented memories I have of Hong Kong since I last visited. Each painting is part of a cityscape of Hong Kong.

Each painting is created on mixed media paper with acrylic paint and black ink.
