About the Artwork

The painting for this series explores the themes of immigration, history, and process. This painting serves as evidence of my heritage, my memoir, my journey, which I am and where I came from.

The usage of denim is very significant in this series, responding to the notion of the "Canadian Tuxedo." And so, this situates me here in Canada. Here I am, a foreign body, abiding by the rules and regulations of this land. Simultaneously, I am building up, creating and layering my marks in this society.

Even more, I also aim to emphasize the usage of acrylic skin in this art piece. I am highlighting the action of peeling off and gluing into a new surface--A synecdoche of a body immigrating into a new place; another reiteration of myself migrating here in Canada.
