Blue and white in oil: MFA Thesis - CeramicsWang, Yage (2021-08)Depictions of ceramic objects in European and American oil paintings are appropriated onto porcelain forms that look like stretched canvases. I explore the relationship between east and west through re-interpretation of western artifacts based on my own projection without permission. Collectively, they are an obnoxious attempt to insert my identity into a history that had already identified and fetishized “me”. My identity retold in sculptural forms are grand, inflated, boastful, and full of insecurity.
