dc.description.abstractMy work explores the experiences of immigration, geographical displacement, uprootedness, and acculturation through abstraction. My production is influenced by surrealist automatism where I suppress conscious control over the making process, allowing my unconscious mind to have greater dominance than logical, figurative control. Thus, my creative process captures the simplicity of objects, shapes, and landscapes using texture, dimensionality, and movement that do not attempt to represent a specific depiction of a visual reality, but that altogether evoke curiosity and wondering in the viewers where they assign basic meanings and interpretations to what is observed.en_US
