I’m a visual artist whose current photographic practice is centred around my ongoing rediscovery of family and heritage. As a first-generation Chinese-Canadian, I’ve often found myself adrift in the turbulence of competing identities and cultural inheritances. My photographic and digital works are explorations of these tensions within me. I create digital composites using the photographs taken during my travels. I use a variety of multiple exposure and digital painting techniques to reimagine the landscapes, objects, and figures captured. This process of art-making allows me, in a way, to meditate on these memories and histories—enabling me to revisit, without leading emotions or biases, those meaningful and powerful moments that have shaped my family and myself.
