Eccentrics      2015 

 

 

My experiences as an immigrant in the U.S compelled me to explore questions around diverse   identities and belief systems through works of art. In the Eccentrics series, the variety of peoples' individual physical from and the impressions we take from them can be  metaphors for ideological beliefs or movements that do not fit cultural "norms". How do we perceive these "movements? What is "normal'?  I aim to  highlight how  fringe movements and beliefs can find their way into the mainstream and become  accepted. Like my own  journey, time and place are essential to this transformation. I chose  the human  form to "embody" this  symbolism because a person's appearance makes the first, most poignant impression.
