My work is concerned with transformation. Coming from Malaysia, I have learned to adapt to a new way of life here in the United States. I exist in a liminal state living in two worlds. I have focused upon the notion of original self, outside influences and transmutation. Working with watercolor is meaningful to me. In Chinese we have a saying which translates roughly to “When you drink water, remember the spring.” The abstracted figures give me a chance to face my new freedom while remembering where I come from. It is found in translation.
