Artist Statement

Unwelcome experiences from sexual trauma have led me to having intrusive thoughts. These intrusive thoughts and unpleasant ideas became an obsession. The hidden forces of the unconscious blend with traumatic memories and incoherent mixtures from my subconscious mind, forming bizarre images, which appeared in my daydreams and night dreams. Much of my works are like the world refracted through the prism of a schizophrenic mind.

My art involves found objects, assemblage, videos, sculptures, and performance; a mixture of analog, digital, and movement.

I would like the experience of viewers seeing my art to be somewhat like a game of hide-and-seek with me, psychologically. Sometimes I am hiding in my work, trying not to be found; other times, I chase viewers. I do not wish to provide or prescribe what my work means to the viewers. My hope is to connect with the viewers’ own momentary expression as they experience the recordings of my story.
As far as others viewing my artwork, I like to think that momentary catharsis can occur.
