Artist Statement Submitted 2014
My images are cultural landscapes that both look familiar and odd at the same time. I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds. I am taking cues from wide ranges of history of Eastern and Western art, colors and designs from popular culture, Korean temple paintings and folk art, internet emoticons and icons, fruit stickers and labels of products from all over the place. I tease and change these lexicons so that they are hard to identify, yet stay in a familiar zone. I want my work to symbolize the diversity and identity of the various worlds we live in. I want to be a visual interpreter of the mixed-cultural world of my generation.
