Artist Statement
The two works utilise the fluidity of watercolors as a mean of an asking for. “Come Eat” seeks to question the intergenerational gathering imbedded in family tradition, as depicted here, in a Chinese culture. “Come Take Picture” takes the narrative of individuals’ gathering in a landscape—a coming together for a reason, possibly also that of a tradition. These invitations, regardless of whom they go to, come from a longing for.
