“My recent work explores the modern-day relationship between landscape and the body and seeks to shed light on fluid gender identities that no longer conform to the dichotomy of male masculinity and female femininity. In the context of the Asian community specifically, which is traditionally portrayed as exotic and feminine, my subjects instead display strong individualities in finding their own place on the spectrum.”

“I often insert myself among the portraits, reexamining the hyper-feminine image that my parents want me to embody, and my performative self in my dad’s suit and tie. Together with the rest of my subjects, we are unapologetically expressive of our identity—Asian, queer, gentle, assertive, ambiguous and yet strong—just like nature, which is fluid and constantly changing, and we persist under hard circumstances.“
