ARTIST STATEMENT

My artistic creations centre around ongoing events in the real world, with a particular focus on the subtle emotional changes that occur in everyday life. The social roles of East Asian women and the stratification within society have always been the major influences on my creative process.

 

In my photographic works, I strive to capture the intricate interplay between my personal experiences and the socio-cultural landscape that has shaped me. Being an Asian woman, I draw inspiration from exploring the nuanced emotions associated with my personal growth, navigating the delicate intersection of tradition and modernity. Through my lens, I aim to portray the multifaceted aspects of being an Asian woman in the contemporary world, while also sharing the complexities of my own personal narrative.

 

In essence, my work seeks to document the imprints left by societal conventions on the lives. I aim to shed light on the struggles and triumphs of individuals navigating a path between tradition and progress. Through the visual medium, I strive to contribute to the broader dialogue surrounding the human experience and the complex journey of self-discovery. In the ever-changing fabric of life, my photographs serve as reminders of the influences that shape us, leaving a lasting trace of the unique journey of an Asian woman coming of age in the 21st century.

 

My art explores the impact of societal norms, oppressive education, and social stratification on Asian youth. I focus on the pressures that shape their lives, perpetuating inequality. Through photography, I hope to capture the effects of expectations, rigidity, and hierarchies on their emotions, particularly for Asian women, revealing their complex experiences in a stratified society.

 

In my recent series, "The Garbage," I explore the profound impact of oppressive educational systems in Asia on personal growth values. This body of work serves as a visual commentary on the repercussions of a rigid and pressure-laden educational environment that stifles creativity and authentic self-expression. Metaphorically, "The Garbage" captures the discarded dreams, aspirations, and individuality of young minds caught in the relentless pursuit of academic excellence.
