“我的工作从记录我的日常生活开始: 通过绘画化妆,选择配饰,情绪调节等。这种令人精疲力竭的例行公事有时被认为是一种应对机制,也是社会谈判的必要条件。推动这些行为的消费主义和社会心理也适用于纸上作品。观察性绘画反映了公众舆论和习俗的限制,以及我身边围绕女性性行为的文化背景。这也反映了亚洲女性在美国社会中的地位。我通过自我反省来探索和暴露这些个人话题,从我的身体到作品。”

"My work starts from recording my daily routine: applying make-up, selecting accessories, emotional regulation, etc., through drawing. This exhausting routine is sometimes considered a coping mechanism, and a necessity for negotiating society. The consumerism and social psychology driving these actions also apply to my works on paper. My observational drawings reflect restrictions imposed by public opinion and conventions, my particular cultural background surrounding women’s sexuality. It also reflects the situation of Asian women in U.S society. I explore and expose these personal topics through self-examination, from my body, to works on paper."
