I've been doing portraits of people and let's since the pandemic started. Trying to have photography be my constant in an ever changing world

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve produced a number of works, several of which are part of a series that I call “Staves of Power.” People have used rods or wands as symbols of authority throughout human history, and all over the world. For example, in traditional communities in the Peruvian Andes, leaders carry staves for special occasions that indicate their specific offices and responsibilities.

 

One of the works that I created during the coronavirus lock-down is titled Phases of the Moon. The piece is literally made of junk: an antique knife with a lunate shape, odd bits of metal, and scraps of wood. Phases of the Moon was inspired by the Surreal art of Joan Miró.

 

Another sculpture that I completed during the pandemic--which also belongs to the “Staves of Power” series--is called Girasol. Girasol, like Phases of the Moon, has been fashioned from discarded refuse: for the head of the staff I used a rusty iron cog, while the shaft consists of the wooden handle of an old shovel.

I guess all I can say recently and as of the last 20 years. My inspiration is my student population. The art I make isn't $ oriented. It's made to inspire my student population. Art with $ attached is soulless. It's a philosophy I follow.

My work started out as a necessity to give myself an outlet as directed by my psychiatrist. What started as a way to give my thoughts and feelings some kind of direction, became so much more, and I am thankful I picked up a brush. It saved me.

I knew coming into 2020 it was going to be a year for evolution. So, I aimed at more artistic experimentation with limited resources and outlets for expression; spilling over into my music and overall perception of Art & Life.

The quiet and slowed-down pace of the past few months have created a space for me to be creative. I’ve been inspired to sketch, watching winter turn to spring then summer. These drawings have found their way onto my ceramic surfaces and forms, marking the time passed with mugs, bowls and pitchers.

During this time, I've been making polymer clay earrings for Lia Yuan Designs, which a friend and I started in 2019. While we cannot make earrings together, we've been working together over Facetime. As I've also been at my family's home (I'm normally based in Boston), I've also been using this time to learn pottery from my mom, Diane Lia, of Lia Pottery.

This is a stone seal I hand carved for a writer named Pam Zhang who's book 'How Much of These Hills is Gold' was recently published.

 

At home I've been working on my series of paintings focusing on depicting queer asians from my fam in NYC. Some of the work will be displayed at my first solo show next May at Skånes Konstförening gallery in Malmö, Sweden. I will be performing some crazy calligraphy performance in my driveway to virtually broadcast for Live arts and Bubble_T on June 28th for pride.

In creating the prints for Fairwinds, I envisioned the Cape's everchanging relationships between land, water and sky and the way the house becomes part of the landscape. As the work developed, I consciously hovered between representation and abstraction, wanting iconic rather than entirely literal imagery. It was important that the prints belong to the interior spaces through color, form and scale and at the same time relate to aesthetic features of the Cape. I experimented by combining printmaking, painting and collage, which can be magical processes of transformation, like alchemy.

During the first couple months of the pandemic, I was extremely grateful to have a backlog of portrait commissions like this to work through. Now I am stepping outside and trying to make the most of the situation by painting my surroundings. I hope that just as everything is coming into bloom this spring, we can all wake up to bright new possibilities moving forward.

During this Spring while everyone was locked indoors I found some peace and quietude in my garden and surrounding forest. The previous year I had planted flowers specifically for both their beauty and to preserve in my resin art. Instead of focusing on the negative of everything happening in current affairs, I wanted to draw peoples attention to the beauty sprouting all around them. I let the flowers grow to full maturity and then carefully cut and dry them before delicately placing them in my resin pieces. The whole process takes between 2-3 weeks for each piece and requires many steps but I believe the results are worth it.

My work is always evolving, experimenting and exploring ways to create a visual impact. My work is cemented in a fundamental foundation of; technique, creative expression, exploration of shape and scale, and surface textures. My current work outside the classroom is centered around exploring the human form, sculpting full figures and busts. With an emphasis on exploring themes that are represented within a series of works.

With so many recent life changing events, I have pushed myself outside of my comfort zone and allowed my artwork to take on a life of its own. My paintings are a translation of the raw emotions the world and myself have experienced in 2020. My hope is that others can find themselves in the chaos of my paintings.

During the shut down I have used my time to slow down and be patient with my images. Before, I always was on the go and felt rushed. With this extra time I have been able to enhance my knowledge of digital drawing. I love creating illustrations with color pencil, but the process is painstakingly slow. I love drawing digitally. It has allowed me to create more pieces, and work with more people. From afar of course. Also I tend to create memorial portraits. It’s difficult to lose so, done and I take great pride in bringing comfort to families.

I’ve been working with a combination of india ink lines and wash to create abstract perspectives on paper. The way ink flows and dries makes the pace of each piece somewhat evident. This series will continue to be a fun visual exploration of my psyche.

Recently I have gotten into sculpting with polymer clay and integrating things like old jewelry, metallic leaf and mirrors. I am currently working on a large project reinterpreting the Major Arcana of the Tarot, which is symbolic of man’s evolution of consciousness. This is Death. Death is symbolic of movement, regeneration and change. This sculpture was created using snake shed, a cats eye gemstone and a mirror with the Kali Shri Yantra painted on to it.

Covid-19 has created changes in both my art and how I work. Now that I'm sharing my workspace with my family every day, I am making art that's compatible with distraction, like sketching and single layer prints. My art has been focusing more directly on things that are meaningful to me personally, rather than worrying about whether others will appreciate it.

My biggest adventure is agreeing to be in my first ever art show, Art Walk 2020 where I’ll feature my portraits.

The stairs I’m sitting on are part of a porch I built, by myself, twenty years ago, when my favorite medium was creek stone. I’m holding a copy of my novel, “The Seventh Traveler”. I drew the cover. Much of my early work is pen and ink, to which I later integrated color pencil. More recently I have been exploring the use of oil on canvas.   

           The pandemic isolation focused my energy on a 3’ x 4’ canvas, “Valley of the Shadow”, depicting people facing death in a foreboding dark wood. Progress has slowed as I approach my scheduled cataract surgeries.

             To view my book, or art work, please visit cultpublishingllc.com. Included is a twenty-five minute recital of my poem “Collage”.

She discovered her love of abstract art, pop-art, and expressionism while taking classes in elementary school, and is self-taught and currently does commission work. She works mainly with heavy body acrylics - which is a fast drying nature of paint as it suits her technique and her overall perception of the physical world and it’s environ: of many quick textured layers, sometimes applied with palette knives and brushes.

Summertime on the churning brown river peaks with a dense pallet of vibrant jungle greens. Lush vines drape branches. Tree trunks, twisted and hollowed, defy nature's rush to the sea. Plants bob on white capped currents in a wild garden world. Cirrus clouds streak a sun-drenched sky, as Islands scream out, "We are alive!"
