Artist Statement

I paint ping pong, thinking about the game play of the sport as an analogy for the Asian American narrative of traversing between two cultures. I consider the impact of growing up with conflicting values and traditions, reflecting on how the constant shifting in emotions and deliberations that come with hybrid identities can be comparable to the swift rallying nature of ping pong. I also work with the visual motif of a woman squatting, aiming to present a sense of loss while working with contextual elements to indicate solidarity and resilience, conjuring discussion on displacement.
